First airing on NBC in 1955, this classic television series follows the adventures of Foreign Legion captain Michael Gallant (Buster Crabbe), the orphan he adopts (played by Cullen Crabbe, Buster's real-life son), and his pal and colleague Private Fuzzy Knight. Posted in the desert lands of North Africa, Gallant is in charge of protecting the peace and keeping an eye on his fellow Legionnaires. With gangs and criminals ready to cause trouble at any moment, the captain has his work cut out for him. Reflecting a 1950s purity, Captain Gallant was a positive role model for children, and for his adopted son, Cuffy. This combination of the first two volumes contains eight classic episodes.
