Saddle up for the third series of an enduring favourite from the Western stable of entertainment. Complete and uncut with 37 action-packed episodes destined to capture your sense of high adventure, Wagon Train will transport you back to a time and place of good old fashioned thrills where courage reigns over adversity.A successful spin-off from John Ford's classic motion picture Wagon Master (1950) which introduced Ward Bond as the revered Major Seth Adams, Wagon Train recruited the likes of Robert Horton as Head Scout Flint McCullough, Frank McGrath as Cook Charlie Wooster and Terry Wilson as Assistant Wagonmaster Bill Hawks to perilously transport westward-bound emigrants by Conestoga wagon from the banks of the Mississippi to California's Pacific shores.Each rip-roaring episode rolls out a captivating story of survival against challenging conditions as the wagon train navigates the desolate prairie and winds its way with optimism to a new life for its many disparate passengers in California.Featuring some of Hollywood's brightest and most recognisable actors including Bette Davis (The Elizabeth McQueeny Story), Mickey Rooney (The Greenhorn Story), Ernest Borgnine (The Estaban Zamora Story), Johnny Cash (The C.L. Harding Story), Warren Oates (The Martha Barham Story), Peter Lorre (The Alexander Portlass Story) to name but a few, Wagon Train is a rollicking journey into the heart of the wild west and beyond.
