THE LONER / THE LLOYD BRIDGES SHOW

Classic TV Shows

 

Created by Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling in 1965, the series was set in the years immediately following the American Civil War. Lloyd Bridges played the title character, William Colton, a former Union cavalry officer who headed to the American west in search of a new life and helping out people with their problems along the way.   He often had to battle villains of the old west.   Many of these shows were actually written by Rod Serling.

Rod Serling obviously intended The Loner to be a realistic, adult Western and it featured many top name guest stars including Burgess Meredith, Dan Duryea, Barry Sullivan, James Gregory, Leslie Neilson and Brock Peters. In one episode titled "The Oath," Barry Sullivan played a surgeon who'd lost the use of his right hand and had to give Colton verbal directions on how to remove a gunfighter's ruptured appendix. In "The Homecoming of Lemuel Stove," Brock Peters played a black Union soldier returning home to see his father. The soldier made it back to his hometown only to learn his father had been lynched the previous evening by members of a Klan-like group.

The Loner aired Saturday nights at 9:30 Eastern. It debuted on September 18, 1965; the final episode aired March 12, 1966; selected repeats continued through April 30th, 


While the overall quality varies due to different sources of original material, much of this set is excellent with many shows rating as high as 8.5.  Many of these shows come from 16 MM prints.   We have also included as a bonus 4 episodes from the original LLOYD BRIDGES SHOW which was a weekly anthology series.
