TV Series | TV-PG | | Western
Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, California. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product formerly mined in Death Valley.
The first eleven seasons were filmed in black and white, and the final seven seasons were filmed in Technicolor, and on-location in Utah. The first eleven seasons were filmed at locations in Southern California, while several episodes were filmed on an indoor set.
The majority of the weapons shown in the series are not time appropriate. Most were models which came into existence from late 1870s and afterward well after the major wagon trains heading west had long since ended.
Episodes were syndicated under four different titles: "The Pioneers," "Trails West," "Western Star Theater" and "Call of the West."
