One of the longest running and most popular of all the television westerns, "Wagon Train" topped the ratings for eight seasons in the late 1950s and 1960s. Inspired by John Ford’s classic 1950 film, "Wagon Master," "Wagon Train" debuted on Wednesday, September 18, 1957 on the NBC Television Network. The ensemble acting, wonderful scripts and great western scenery soon made "Wagon Train" a fixture in American homes on Wednesday nights, as millions of Americans of all ages tuned in to NBC for classic family entertainment. In 1963, "Wagon Train" expanded from a one-hour format in black and white, to 90 minutes in color. In its longer format, the 7th season combined both expanded story lines and remarkable color photography of the scenic western landscape, and allowed for greater character and plot line development. Guest stars continued to grace "Wagon Train," including performances by Barbara Stanwyck, Ronald Reagan, Peter Falk, Suzanne Pleshette, Bruce Dern, Rhonda Fleming, Burgess Meredith, Neville Brand, Annette Funicello and many, many more! These 32 color episodes of that 7th season are fully restored from the original NBC Universal masters by TMG, which is proud to present them on DVD.
