Rex Rides Again
The 39 half-hour episodes of the television western "Frontier Doctor" were originally broadcast during the 1956-57 television season. There are ten episodes on this DVD set. The series was an attempt to mix the medical show and western genres; and to capitalize on the popularity of legendary "B" Western movie star Rex Allen, known as "The Arizona Cowboy". There had been a series of Rex Allen comic and coloring books along with toy guns and other western merchandise.

Like Gene Autry, Allen was a singing cowboy (he made the last of the singing westerns in 1954) who had gotten a little old for the cowboy hero roles but is fine in the title role of this series. The stories are about the adventures of Bill Baxter, straight shooting doctor in the Arizona Territory in the 1880's. The series was later broadcast in syndication under the names "The Man of the West" and "Unarmed".

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
