The Wells Fargo Stage Line played a heroic role in the history of the West, ferrying passengers and cargo from Missouri to California over a harsh and sometimes hostile land. In Tales of Wells Fargo, Agent Hardie faces weekly tests of will and character, as he protects the stage coaches from outlaws, bandits and Indian raiders, seeing them safely through their journey.
The Old West comes to life in vivid color in this release featuring 22 classic episodes from the sixth and final season of TALES OF WELLS FARGO. Before the railroads were built, it was up to Wells Fargo to ensure that the post, company payroll, and travelers reached their intended destinations quickly and safely. But it wasn't always easy, because you never knew what to expect while traveling through hostile territory. With his trusty Colt 45 at his side and a quick left-hand draw, Agent Jim Hardie (Dale Robertson) was just the man to safe-guard the Wells Fargo stages from the opportunistic black hats and bandits who tracked their every move, just waiting for the right moment to strike. George Kennedy, William Demarest, Eddie Albert, Alan Hale, Jr. and Jack Ging are just a few supporting cast members in a season that featured hour long episodes, and found lead character Hardie making a love connection with the pretty eldest daughter of a frontier widow. An exclusive interview with star Robinson and a rare pilot for the unproduced series "Diamond Jim" that the actor was set to headline are also included.
