The rustle of sagebrush and hot desert sands; pounding cattle hooves and rifle-shot echo. In a time when the West was still wild, a man came to Medicine Bow, Wyoming and they called him The Virginian. Filmed entirely in colour, 'The Virginian' starred Lee J. Cobb as Judge Garth, owner of the Shiloh Ranch, and James Drury in the title role as his foreman with ranch hands Trampas played by Doug McClure and Steve Hill played by Gary Clark. The cast was completed by Roberta Shore in the role of Betsy, the judge's daughter. 'The Six-Shooter Collection' comprises the first six episodes ever broadcast, and features many guest stars including George C. Scott, Colleen Dewhurst, Jack Warden and Ricardo Montalban. 'The Virginian' stands as a great American western; not afraid to take on hard-hitting issues - and not afraid to throw a few punches for the fun of it too.
