Set in the 1890s at the Shiloh Ranch and in fictitious town of Medicine Bow, Wyoming - The Virginian is quite a well-produced TV Western from 1962 that chronicles the lives of the struggling pioneers who had travelled west to this untamed land where they settled and eked out a living as best they could.
Filmed in living-colour - This once-popular "Wild West" production geared all of its story-telling to 90-minute episodes. It starred actors James Drury and Lee J. Cobb. Many of the programs featured celebrity guest-spots from the likes of such performers as George C. Scott. Eddie Albert, and Ricardo Montalban (to name but a few).
