Who cares?
As long as the Studio restore the third-rate prints of season 4.

¶ Episode #19 (S2)
"Incident of the Sharpshooter"
written by Winston Miller
directed by Jesse Hibbs
guests: Jock Mahoney, Morgan Jones, Hugh Sanders, Stafford Repp, Raymond Greenleaf, Harry Ellerbe, Olan Soulé

It's a good escaped convict on the run drama that highlights a dubious, ruthless and two-faced criminal pretending to be a lawyer named Jonathan Williams to gain the respect of a country town and to frame Rowdy Yates for a crime and a robbery at the bank that he committed. After loosing at the poker table, Yates is stuck in a prison cell. The irony is that his part of the rightenous and gunless lawyer turns against him when he offers his service to Gil Favor and suggests him to free Yates from his cell and to avoid hanging at dawn. By chance, Favor discovers the awful truth at the very last minute. The themes of deceit and make believe are engrossing thanks to the sincere performance of guest actor Jock Mahoney. Besides, Rowdy Yates ends the episode by doing the sign-off catch-phrase ("Let's head 'em up and move 'em out!") because Favor orders him nicely to do it.

Promoting actor Clint Eastwood is pure marketing nonsense! He was the second.

There is one person who already pre-ordered the boxset at the Home Theater Forum.
Now, let's wait now for the guinea pig to test the picture quality of season 4.

Yeah, let the HTF member be the guinea pig. Often when the box-set comes out after everyone's bought the seasons singly it means a blu-ray release is not far behind. Rawhide has become one of my favorite programs, thanks to this thread.

Have you read THE TRAIL DRIVERS OF TEXAS compiled by J. Marvin Hunter? In the early 1900s Hunter formed The Old-Time Trail Drivers Association. He interviewed the membership, cowboys who drove cattle to the Kansas cowtowns and elsewhere, and encouraged them to write down their experiences. The book is, then, written by some of the cowpunchers themselves. It basically documents the thirty-year period when men were men. The book was published in 1924, with the second volume coming out in 1925. It was revised and expanded in the 1930s. I have signed 1st editions and a more recent edition that puts both volumes into one big volume. It was an unofficial source for the program:

Following the train of thought, you might also enjoy reading WHY THE WEST WAS WILD, a 1963 compilation of 19th century newspaper accounts about cowboys shooting up the Kansas cowtowns:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0806135301/sr=1-1/qid=1426251416/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1426251416&sr=1-1

Enough untapped material in there for a hundred new westerns.

Thanks for the reference. I don't know this book.

To deviate a bit from the topic, do you know the short-lived western series The Dakotas (1963)? Warner offered it from March 24th. It's supposed to be gritty. And actor Jack Elam plays a lawman inside a team of four men.

TV networks in the sixties defined "gritty" differently than I do. Never heard of THE DAKOTAS, but I'm interested in the program and will buy the Warner Archive release. I own about 1,200 westerns on DVD and blu-ray; not many TV westerns yet. If RAWHIDE comes out on blu-ray I'll certainly buy it, if and when the price is right.

That doesn't include spags which I'll be getting rid of soon. I have 159 of those. Might keep about 10 or 12 tops. The rest is junk.

There is a thread about The Dakotas at Home Theater Forum:
http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/339436-the-dakotas-on-dvd/
Let me know if you learn something from the contents.

PS: If you plan to order it, let me know your impressions on the series.

I'll be getting THE DAKOTAS but not because of what some doofuss says about it on HTF.

Have you seen NICHOLS (1971) ? Only 24 episodes. It had one season before it was canceled, but the program was a superior turn-of-the-century western, not unlike MONTE WALSH, and James Garner has stated that it was his favorite role. Plus it had a very young and irresistible Margot Kidder which is reason enough to watch. Don't hesitate. Buy It Now:

Looks good. Thank you very much.

¶ Episode #23 (S2)
"Incident of the Stargazer"
written by Louis Vittes
story Jan Winters and Ted Gardner
directed by Harmon Jones
guests: Dorothy Green, Buddy Ebsen, Richard Webb, Ted de Corsia, Kelton Garwood, Jonathan Hole, Marya Stevens, Tom Fadden

It's a Pete Nolan with the later support of Wishbone episode and a good tormented character-oriented entry about an imposter named Henry Walker posing as Mr. Turner manipulating the weak wife named Marissa Turner of an astronomer he used to kill to gain their property. All the servants are part of this devious conspiracy: the Indian maid in love with the imposter and the two hired hands. During the first two thirds of the drama, you really believe she is insane. Actress Dorothy Green will return as the sister-in-law of Gil Favor in the seasons to come so it's odd to watch her as a so-called "demented" person—Dorothy Green's pathological performance reminds Vera Miles in "The Wrong Man". For the anecdote, the meeting of Nolan and the wife is composed as in "North by Northwest" because she comes out of a stagecoach in the middle of nowhere.

Stock music-wise, music editor John Elizalde tracks cues from Bernard Herrmann's "Where's Everybody?".
