Great fun but tragic...
21 March 2002 | by artzauSee all my reviews

I loved this show about a family of gunslingers that, as in the credit song recalled "Grandma shooting the buttons off a rustler's vest." The show was rather stock 60s TV mind pablum but still enjoyable to sit down and vege out on, laughing at the goofy situations. Not to mention, it was a pleasure to see Robert Lowery, Ruth McDevitt and the immortal Lon Chaney Jr., all vets whose faces you've seen hundreds of times before. And then, there was the beautiful Ann Sheridan who tragically died of cancer, still working up to the last. In some of the last sequences, where she was only in small scenes, she was so weak, she could hardly stand. It was hard to watch but still, it was an inspiration to see this courageous woman.
