The two Beaudine Bothers refuse rancher Hatcher's offer to go on his cattle drive but change their minds when he is shot. So they head out with six other riders, a cook and a recuperating owner heading 1500 cows towards Colorado 1000 miles away.

    5Please Release The Film on DVD
    By Shopper of Classics and Quality
    I loved this movie and series when it came out in the 70's. I am looking forward to seeing an old show on DVD. With all the other old TV shows that have been re-released, I hope they get around to putting out the entire series. My old HS friend, Hi Anne! LMC!) and I would love that! Order this episode, even though it is just one double=episode. Maybe if we can "vote with our dollars"? Buy more copies...

    I received my copy of this double episode, great to see familiar faces, hear the over-the-top Western music score that goes with this series. Kurt Russell is still great as "Two-Persons", and it is amazing the way he can just swing up on his horse. Didn't look like a stunt-double to me! Tim Matheson, ever-cute playing Doctor, is also fun to watch being a little more serious than he was in "Animal House". This series was truly great, as it offered a new, more sensitive perspective of "Manifest Destiny" and its effect on various populations, and the conflicts that erupted during the "taming" of the West. I love the fact that it was filmed in Arizona, sometimes looking like New Mexico. Scenery is authentic, lending realism to the plot. Even the old wagons used look like the real thing.

    It IS possible to find the entire series, TV pilot and TV movie included, on other web sites. I have since aquired the full set. You just need to look hard, like "The Quest".

    My teen kids have enjoyed watching this series, as well. Maybe the time is right for a more traditional TV series? Not all this smart-mouthed, wise-cracking, over-packaged TV we have nowadays? Movie Execs have been busy remaking our old movies for lack of original ideas. Why not offer good, old-fashioned values once again, and remaster this series to be released as a full set on DVD?
