Josh Randall and his "Mare's Laig" Ride Again! ! !
GRIZZLY | Yuma, Arizona United States | 06/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the most memorable and famous characters of the '50's Western genre was Steve McQueen's "Josh Randall", who spoke softly (with the Southern drawl he cultivated in his early days roaming around the South, particularly Myrtle Beach, S.C.) and carried a Big Gun, the sawed-off Winchester lever-action rifle then known as the "Mare's Laig". I remember the excitement each week eagerly waiting for each episode of this great Western.
One of my fondest childhood memories was the weekend I spent with my Dad, helping him to hand make my own custom-made leather belt rig from scratch for my toy "Mare's Laig" in time for use as part of a Halloween costume when the plastic original proved to be a poor replica.
With all the second-rate wastage flooding the DVD market lately, it's really great to see New Line Ent. bring back such a great actor in a great Western!"
Wanted Dead or Alive is cool

"I am a big fan of Steve McQueen and I have watched several episodes of Wanted Dead or Alive. I am excited about the series coming out on DVD. It is hard to find this series on VHS and when found they are expensive. Steve McQueen played Josh Randall with a calm Mid-Western type attitude with a sense of humor. McQueen does not play the tough guy looking for a fight, instead he was a gentlemen to the ladies and kept calm in most situations. He was a bounty hunter doing his job and when pushed he used his rifle with speed and accuracy. The series is dated because you can tell right away who is bad and who is good and it is in black and white. Although, I like the camera angles in most of the episodes they are very good. Richard Donner directed a few episodes and there are several episodes that take place outdoors. The best part is Steve McQueen was a great actor even while on T.V. and he was the "King of Cool" on Wanted Dead or Alive."

" would be NICE if Amazon would consider adjusting the product information to reflect what they're selling, and not, apparently, the Rutger Hauer movie of the same name. It's a little difficult for someone who may not be highly familiar with this classic television series to buy it, when EVERYTHING in the product listing was apparently lifted from the other item (probably the vhs form of the movie, no less) rather than someone taking the time to give the correct information for the actual product - a classic television series that deserves far better treatment. C'mon, Amazon...FIX IT! Steve McQueen should at least be getting credit where credit is due!"
