An amnesiac man, left for dead, searches the Old West for anything that would help him regain his memory. Such was the concept behind A Man Called Shenandoah, which ran for 1 season on ABC (1965-6). Robert Horton (ex-Wagon Train), who had previously sworn he'd not do another Western after leaving Wagon Train, took on Shenandoah in the belief that it would allow him more range as an actor. Not only that, but Horton also sang the show's theme song, and released his version of the classic folk song, "Oh Shenandoah", as a single that same year, recording for Columbia Records.
The series is currently part of Get TV's Saturday Showdown block, which allows extra running time to let each series (Shenandoah, Laredo, The Tall Man, Nichols, Whispering Smith, Hondo) run uncut, even with extra commercials. Hence, a half hour series airs for 40 minutes, and a hour-long show is stretched to 70 minutes. Cimmaron City has been added to the block, and will be reviewed at a later date.
No episodes are available in their entirety, but we do have a montage of clips from the series, playing over Horton's theme song.
Other than the amnesiac angle, this played like an average show of the period, a stranger roaming from town to town, often helping others in need or stumbling into trouble not of his own making.
