There are 39 episodes in this first season each lasting round 50 minutes. Guest stars include Ernest Borgnine, Ricardo Montalban, Michael Rennie, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, June Lockhart and Nick Adams -- to name but a few!
TMG have got one thing wrong, though. They state on the back cover that Ward Bond originally played Major Seth Adams in the 1950 movie 'Wagonmaster', but that is not correct. He played Elder Wiggs, the leader of a group of Mormons who hire Travis Blue ( played by Ben Johnson ) to guide their wagon train.
From the Golden Age of Television Westerns, this was the grand-daddy of the genre which ran from 1957 to 1965 with great writing. Every week selected a story involving one of the travelers on an 1870's "wagon train" making its way across the American West.
Ward Bond as Major Seth Adams and his team led a group of hardy pioneers across the plains and mountains to California post Civil War. Picking up a guest star for the story of that particular episode.
Robert Horton was scout Flint McCullough and several episodes featured him in the lead, as they took him to places he was scouting with guest stars for him to interact with.
Frank McGrath and Terry Wilson were a pair of stunt men who worked many times for John Ford. Wagon Train made their faces familiar to the public. McGrath was funny little guy as cook Charlie Wooster who must have kept them all amused because the regulars were forever complaining about his lousy cooking. Wilson played Bill Hawks Assistant Wagon Master.
Gene Roddenberry described his original concept of "Star Trek" (1966) as "Wagon Train in space".
Ward Bond's final acting project.
Very reasonable and a good value for the price --- For product description and editorial review check this out on the Amazon site above my review.
