    A Man Called Shenandoah

    Bob, very interesting trivia about Robert Horton's buckskins being handed down to William Smith on Laredo. Thanks for that, I'll have to take another look at that series. I have Laredo in the TMG complete set, a fun show then and now. I remember reading in the Combat! viewer's companion that...

    A Man Called Shenandoah

    Bob, interesting that you brought up "other reasons" for a show leaving the air.

    A Man Called Shenandoah

    I'm enjoying the new WAC release of Man Called Shenandoah too. And Like Dan and many of us here, I look forward to seeing John Dehner in just about anything as well. A nice coincidence with releases this month has another fine John Dehner guest appearance showing up in the just released Gunsmoke...

    A Man Called Shenandoah

    Man Called Shenandoah is a very good Western, although the central theme of the show sometimes strains credibility at times with "Shenandoah" being recognized, attacked, deceived or led on to nowhere by people who know his real identity, or have clues to finding the truth about him, in just...
