Have waited a long time to see this series, watched right through all 5 discs, however, disc 5 started to stop/start a lot which was very annoying, I took the disc out, cleaned it but it still stuttered, wonder if it was the disc or my player? Have always been a Clint Walker fan and this Western Series really brings back memories of waiting for it to start on a Saturday night on the old b & w goggle box MANY MANY MOONS AGO. With the size of "goggle-boxes" these days "Cheyenne" looks twice the size! Wonder why L.Q.Jones ("Smitty") only appeared on the first 2 or 3 episodes? Well worth watching is the Clint Walker interview (love the guy's accent!) Am waiting for delivery of Complete Season 2, and with all 7 seasons now released am determined to have all 7! HAPPY VIEWING.
This takes me back to when westerns were one of the most popular tv genres, before the detective "boom" of the 70s
Although many of the storylines are stereotypical by today's standards, these are well crafted and acted, even if occasionally some little cliche makes an unintended comic moment
Lots of familiar faces in the "guest" spots, including James Garner. Trivia fans will note the appearance of the "governor" from Hawaii 5-0 as a troubled cavalry captain in one episode.
They really don't make 'em like these anymore.....but watching these really brings back all kinds of childhood memories to me.
Check out a very different role for Clint Walker, in "Send Me No Flowers" - the Rock Hudson/Doris Day classic - where Rock Hudson plays a hypochondriac convinced he's dying, who selects Clint W, an old boyfriend of his wife, Doris D, as his successor so she won't be lonely. Some hilarious sight gags in there, making the most of the towering Walker, compared to the not-usually puny Hudson!
For those of us old enough to remember seeing "Cheyenne" on our black-and-white TV screens way back in the late 1950s/early 60s, this DVD set is pure nostalgia. It is also a snapshot of the best American character actors at work as the "guest baddies". Some really good stories, like "Rendezvous at Red Rock", guest starring the great Gerald Mohr. And, of course, there's the song! Unforgettable. Highly recommended for any TV Western addicts!
Cheyenne was my favourite western tv series growing up in the fifties and sixties, i purchased the dvds purely on nostalgia i was not disappointed, they have still got a good feel about them, Clint Walker is perfectly cast in the title role, you could not imagine anyone else as cheyenne. i would recommend anyone who saw them on tv the first time around like me to go ahead and buy you wont be disappointed
