Titles cut out
on 7 October 2008
As much as I like Wagon Train this DVD production is terrible. Part of the nostalgia in seeing these old series is the opening & closing titles as much as the stories. Sadly, apart from the story title segment at the beginning of each episode, these are completely missing. The quality is bad, which didn't worry me that much, but why they hacked off the opening and closing titles I don't understand. If you recognise an actor & can't place him you'll have to look the story up on the net as there is not even the cast list on these.
It's interesting to see these early black & white John McIntire episodes as they haven't been shown on TV in the UK probably since the original transmission, but the production value of this DVD is more than disappointing. As it's cheap you may want to buy it just to have a look, but don't expect too much. Better to hold out for a possible well produced box set in the future.
