    Saw a post on the Warner Archive facebook page that A Man Called Shenandoah is in the works. No information on release date though.

    I recorded them all complete off of GET-TV a couple of years ago, which I'm content with. Don't need them now really.

    I'm sitting on a stack of episodes that I'm holding off from transferring because I know once I get done, WA will announce the series. I wonder what the holdup is on this show.

    This time last year they said they had to complete music clearance and then the episodes needed to be remastered. Since they managed to clear their other western shows, I expect them to clear this one. The exception being the Alaskans which is tougher to clear like the detective shows. So they may be in the remastering process right now. I would guess at least season 1 is a safe bet for sometime this year.

    This post was in reference to Colt .45 hopefully being in the works. There were 3 seasons of Colt .45 but only 1 season of Man from Shenandoah.

    I am looking forward to the release of A Man Called Shenandoah. I don't remember watching this before, so it will be nice to have another western to enjoy for the first time.

    The Travels of Jamie McPheeters is a possibility for release later this year by WA for the appeal of a then child-actor Kurt Russell, also not to mention the Osmond Bros., who sang the theme song over the end credits.

    GRIT has been showing an extended feature length version of the last episode of THE TRAVELS OF JAMIE McPHEETERS, called GUNS OF DIABLO. It's in color. The series was in black and white. MGM made it in the same time-frame they filmed a couple of extended color features from the first season of THE MAN FROM UNCLE, which was in black and white, except for the episodes they planned to expand for the features.

    It's interesting that at the same time AMCS was being made Larry Cohen had created Coronet Blue for CBS. Both shows had the same premise: a man with amnesia searching for his identity. Two big differences: Coronet Blue was filmed in color and took place in the 1960s New York. Due to management changes at CBS that show was put on shelf for two years before it aired in the summer of 1967. And now, both shows are out on DVD!

    Does anyone know if you order direct from Warner Archive that you can get a pressed set?I understand
    Amazon purchases are MOD only.This show would be a blind buy,may get it if they are remastered and uncut.

    I just received my copy yesterday. I have never seen the show before. Watched the 1st episode and it looks to be a good show. They are not pressed discs. The quality is excellent. They were remastered and are uncut running a little over 25 minutes each. Highly Recommended for Western TV show fans.

    I agree, its a good show. However, similar to The Californians, I'm not a big western fan and I'm quite content with having both series recorded from GET-TV, complete and uncut. Especially at BOD prices.

    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 about every episode...ultimately never really learning his real name and identity before the series was unfortunately cancelled. The show still holds interest as they establish some critical details about his past, however. In the course of the 34 episodes, some satisfying continuity is established in the compelling mystery with Shenandoah following up on clues and characters introduced previously. This is a good action show with a lot of great location shooting at Mammoth Lakes, Old Tucson, Mojave at Lone Pine etc. And the guest stars are wonderful!

    Man Called Shenandoah was created by E. Jack Neuman, who also wrote most of the episodes. This was the first show that Neuman did right after Mr. Novak, and also for MGM. Boris Sagal, also from Mr. Novak, directed. The great Nathan Juran and Tom Gries also directed a number of episodes. Fred Freiberger was one of the producers on Man Called Shenandoah, right about the same time as he was producing the second pilot for Star Trek. There are many Trek alumni seen on Man Called Shenandoah...DeForest Kelly, Leonard Nimoy, James Doohan, Susan Oliver, Sally Kellerman, Paul Carr, Warren Stevens, Frank Gorshin all appear on this show. Other great guest stars like Beverly Garland, Geraldine Brooks, Anne Helm, Martin Landau, Ed Asner, Bruce Dern, Claude Akins, Warren Oates, Robert Loggia, Nehemiah Persoff, John Dehner, Albert Salmi, John Mcintire, Jeanette Nolan, Gregory Walcott, John Anderson, Ed Binns, Milton Selzer, Cloris Leachman, David Sheiner, Charles McGraw, Harry Dean Stanton, Bing Russell, Henry Jones, Leif Erickson, Lloyd Bochner, Joyce Van Patten, Andrew Duggan, Norman Fell, John Ireland, Diana Hyland and Gary Merrill...

    My copy of Man Called Shenandoah is on the way to me...I'm alright with burned discs on quality media, the only problem I've ever had with a WAC disc was on a pressed disc for The FBI...I'm glad that another B+W MGM TV show has been released by WAC...with Mr. Novak S1 hopefully coming soon...I would hope for The Thin Man TV series too, though I'm worried that there are more complicated rights issues with that one than some others. And WAC has a lot of great MGM, RKO and WB classic feature films for Blu ray in the que also...

    I like how Robert Horton starts riding the same Appaloosa horse he rode on WAGON TRAIN.
