This set has sort of piqued my interest because even though the details are sketchy, the contents of the set are sort of spelled out on the box (to your left): installments of Laramie, Laredo, Tales of Wells Fargo, Wagon Train, Bat Masterson, The High Chaparral, The Rifleman…and a picture of Clayton Moore near the top is a sure bet there’s some Lone Rangers on the set as well. The price for the set is $39.98 SRP, but if it’s discounted enough I can see myself getting a copy for the Wells Fargo and High Chaparral material. The others mentioned suggest that they’re the same P.D. episodes present and accounted for in other collections—with maybe the possible exception of Laramie (could they have put some of the black-and-white shows on this one?). As for
Tales of Wells Fargo was a big favorite of my Mom’s when she was an adolescent—later on, my father would provoke her into a mild state of pissed-offedness by referring to the show’s star (Dale Robertson) as “Dale Roberts”—also indicating that Mr. R was a tad on the retarded side. (On the same topic, if anyone is interested in purchasing all the seasons of High Chaparral on disc, my pal Rodney is offering them at OldieDVD/Finders Keepers and I can personally vouch for their quality, since he sells nothing but.)
TVShows also has a quick blurb announcing that although there hasn’t been an official date set, CBS DVD-Paramount does have plans for DVD releases of The Lucy Show on their schedule—with Season One scheduled for possibly a late July/early August date (huge emphasis on late July). Since MPI is reportedly going to be instituting their Here’s Lucy releases at about the same time, will it prove too much at once for the red-headed comedienne’s fans?
