Westerner TV Series DVD Set 1960 Brian Keith Action
Starring: Brian Keith, Hank Gobble, Jimmy Lee Cook
In The Westerner, laconic cowboy Dave Blasingame wanders the Wild West with his faithful dog Brown and the occasional companionship of pal Burgundy Smith through thirteen episodes of this popular 1960 TV series.
Brian Keith had a John Wayne kind of quality that served the show admirably while that underrated character actor John Dehner played his sometimes sidekick, Burgundy Smith. Throw in the dog from Old Yeller (here called Brown, which was his real name) and some intriguingly anecdotal tales, all very anti-heroic, and you had a show that captured the escapades of an ordinary saddle tramp in a way that no other did.
Tagline: WITH HIS OWN HANDS HE PUT THE ROPE AROUND HIS NECK…and then defied the law to hang him! (original herald)
