"All the '26 Men' are great quality for black & white, it's not just a TV series, at the beginning one can read that the films are based on true stories of the real Arizona Rangers. On 'The Bell's of St. Thomas' with Jim Davis, one of the original Rangers John Redmond appears(elderly of course) before it starts to say that even though the original Arizona Rangers are no longer with us, he appears in the episode towards the end in back on the horse while the Capt. & priest & others present are talking about how well the boy did with the bells in warning the Rangers about the danger with the outlaws present at the church/school & the reward the school will get, the original ranger never talks.
'The Recruit' is also good, they all are, these are all events that took place, it's history. Most of the small towns are now cities. If one drives on highway near Santa Clarita, Ca. & other areas of course, one can still see the rocks that the outlaws used just like in the episodes to hide from the law(sheriff's & Rangers), I saw them. It's really something to see with your own eyes the places where events took place so many years ago. We have enjoyed watching them more than once on different days. So glad we got them.
