UNCLE PETE, STONE DOG, AND OL’ POTMETAL SETTLE IN A LUXURY SUITE FOR SOME CLASSIC WESTERNS

Dust off that Stetson and soap up that saddle cuz it’s time to ride the range with UNCLE PETE and his trusty steed Ol’ Potmetal  as they bring you The Classic Television Spectacular – Part III on this week’s DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!.  We’ll ride with Bat Masterson (Gene Barry) and guest stars William (Frank Cannon) Conrad and James (Roscoe P. Coltrane) Best as Bat moseys into a tent city just about to hold a necktie party.  But the guest of honor might be innocent so Bat steps in and gunplay and brawlin’ ensue in Stampede In Tent City.

For hard ridin’, straight shootin’, and suspense, you can’t beat the First Gal of The Old West –  Annie Oakley (Gail Davis).  At least that’s what the intro tells us!  Gail, a frequent co-star of Gene Autry , appeared in 81 episodes along with her horse Target, lawman Lofty Cragg (Brad Johnson), and little brother Tag (Jimmy Hawkins) from 1954 through 1957.  Here in Shadow At Sonoma  (1956), there’s trouble at the county fair as Annie spots a dead ringer for Lofty who ain’t no straight shooter.

Next we add a little color (literally) with an episode of The Cisco Kid.  The “Robin Hood Of The Old West” came to TV from radio in 1950 with Duncan Renaldo as Cisco and Leo Carrillo as his sidekick Pancho.  Each week they and their horses Diablo and Loco righted wrongs, helped the unfortunate and rescued the put-upon.  In this episode Cisco and Pancho face bushwhackers, murderers, and some spooky stuff in Ghost Story.

ROY ROGERS AND TRIGGER IN PURSUIT

ROY ROGERS AND TRIGGER IN PURSUIT

Then it’s the King Of The Cowboys – Roy Rogers (played by Roy Rogers).  Roy, horse Trigger, dog Bullet, sweetie Dale Evans – Queen Of The West, Dale’s horse Buttermilk and comic sidekick Pat Brady with his jeep Nellie Belle rode the range finding bad guys and helping out folks that needed help.  The show aired from 1951  to 1957. In this episode, Roy and his gang help little Lucy who has just lost her Mommy and whose Daddy has a price on his head for some hanky panky at the banky, er bank.   Roy must prove Lucy’s Daddy isn’t an outlaw before the law or the bad guys settle his hash first.  It’s Unwilling Outlaw on The Roy Rogers Show.
