Forgotten TV: Buckskin (1958)

Wal, howdy-do again, podnuhs. We're stayin' out West a wee bit longer today, so pull up a log and take a trip back in time to the 19th century and the town of Buckskin, Montana.

Buckskin was a 1-season wonder for NBC (1958-9), largely  because there were so many Westerns on the air at the time, a glut that wouldn't break for another decade or so. Revue (Universal) was responsible for much of the glut, y'see, since they produced so many. 'Tis a shame that Buckskin ain't on the air right now, although channels like Grit could do something 'bout that right soon.

Right now, let's take a look-see at "The Trial of Chrissy Miller". The feller what posted it also appears at the start of the video to introduce it to y'all.



Co-star Mike Road (Marshal Sellers) is better known for later work in animation, mostly as the voice of Roger "Race" Bannon on Jonny Quest, but also came to Hollywood after a successful run on Broadway as an actor and director.

Rating: B.
