The second season of Cheyenne was finally released. It is in 2 volumes (5 discs each), but both parts are currently available and all 20 episodes of the season are reproduced in high quality. This is the best season of Cheyenne (season 3 is also in the same level) and it is a must to all western fans and to people who watched television in the 50s and 60s. It was originally aired from September 11, 56 thru June 4, 57. These episodes have many important guest stars, people now retired or deceased: James Garner, Angie Dickinson, Peggie Castle, Ruchard Crenna, Merry Anders, Dennis Hoppe, Edward Byrnes, John Carradine, etc.
Hollywood was really unfair to Clint Walker. He was underestimated as an actor. Today, when we watch the Cheyenne series, or Fort Dobbs, or Yellowstone Kelly, or Gold of the Seven Saints, we can see how good he was when portraing a westerner. I don't think he could have done well in soap operas or in any Shakespearean drama, but in western movies he was perfect, as good as John Wayne, Gary Cooper or Randolph Scott. Clint certainly deserved a better chance in Hollywood in the old days, when the western genre was still alive.
All Cheyenne fans are now waiting for the third season. Hurry up, Warner Archive and make Big Clint ride again for another 20 episodes.
