The Westerner: The Complete Series [Collector's Edition]
Western adventure from the director of The Wild Bunch!
Brian Keith (Family Affair) stars in The Westerner, the 1960 television series created by the legendary director and screenwriter Sam Peckinpah (Straw Dogs, Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid.) Keith plays the drifter Dave Blassingame, a congenial cowhand who's as good with a gun as he is with the ladies. Along with his faithful dog, Brown, Blassingame wanders the West, finding adventure and excitement along the way. Although short-lived in its original run, The Westerner was critically acclaimed, and represents an excellent opportunity for discerning Western fans to witness some of Peckinpah's early work in the genre.
