About this item
Owen Wister's 1902 western novel "The Virginian" was one of the first great novels of the American West. Set in the semi-mythical town of Medicine Bow, Wyoming in the 1890s, it chronicled the lives and relationships of the people who came west and settled the wild land. "The Virginian" was the first 90 minute television western, airing in prime time on NBC from 1962-1971. After 8 seasons, the long-running and popular series, "The Virginian", took a new direction, as well as a new title, "The Men from Shiloh". The show was now set in the 1890's, 10 years after the previous season of "The Virginian", and it continued to tell the adventures of The Virginian, (James Drury) and his friend Trampas (Doug McClure), in Medicine Bow, Wyoming. Trampas had grown a mustache, and The Virginian sported long sideburns. However, the Shiloh Ranch has now been bought by an Englishman, Colonel Alan Mackenzie (Stewart Granger), complete with his own very English valet, Parker (John McLiam). Another new cast member was ranch hand Roy Tate, portrayed by a post-"Big Valley" Lee Majors. Among the guest stars appearing in "The Men From Shiloh" are Desi Arnaz ("Best Man"), Elizabeth Ashley ("The West vs. Colonel MacKenzie"), John Ireland ("Jenny"), Jack Albertson and Art Carney ("With Love, Bullets and Valentines"), Susan Strasberg ("Crooked Corner"), Jane Wyatt ("The Price of the Hanging"), Peter Breck and Lorraine Gary ("Hannah"), and many more of your favorite western stars. Like all good things, "The Virginian", after 9 seasons in the sun, had to come to an end. But "The Men from Shiloh" gives us all one last look at the seemingly boundless future that was the American West, and the men and women who tamed the rugged land and made their home on the range.
