Unbelievable! Two relatively obscure NBC Westerns are coming to DVD next month thanks to Timeless Media Group and both sets will include episodes left unaired during their original network runs. The Oregon Trail with Rod Taylor premiered in September 1977 and was canceled after just six episodes were broadcast. An earlier pilot telefilm aired in January 1976. According to TVShowsOnDVD.com, the set comes out on April 13th, complete with the pilot, the six broadcast episodes and another seven unaired episodes.
Whispering Smith starred Audie Murphy and was supposed to premiere at the start of the 1959-1960 season but was held back until January 1961. It will be released on DVD on April 20th, with the twenty episodes broadcast on NBC as well as five unaired episodes. Read the full announcement here.
What’s next? Coronet Blue on DVD in pristine condition with the two unaired episodes?
