death valley days begin
Video Rating: 5 / 5
for years the TV night sign off just after after saturday night wrestling..
Classic TV show – based on true Death Valley stories – Ruth Woodman the writer – great stuff!
This was a staple every sunday afternoon and then zap, gone and never seen again.
Thanks for the post.
The original episodes were hosted by a grey haired sidewinder known as the “old ranger.” After his death, Ronald Reagan was host for several years.
if you remember this show you are old-i was like 8 years old -watching this show in 1962-i think they were re-runs-
I would like to hear the voice of Robert Taylor…
i remember as a child, they would use the twenty mule borax wagon in some of the adds.
my grand father loved westerns and many
a day and night we would revisit the old
west together thru shows like this.
I believe Robert Taylor hosted those episodes while Ronald Reagan was campaigning for Governor of California in 1966- the title, “DEATH VALLEY DAYS”, was owned by sponsor U.S. Borax & Chemical Corporation, and first-run episodes in syndication were always seen under the original title. Because U.S. Borax reserved the rights to the title, earlier episodes were re-syndicated under different titles with different hosts….
The quality of this video could be better. The sound comes in and out, and it skips.
Death Valley Days was a nice show. I wish some of the Cable channels would carry the show.
Dear 50′s And 60′s Fans
