| First Cheyenne episode is essentially a remake of Errol Flynn's 1950 "Rocky Mountain"...
...with a number of notable guest stars, including James Garner (just prior to his "Maverick" days). As with a number of later "Cheyenne" episodes, the characters and plot are not only taken from old western movies (normally with high production values providing plenty of good footage), the TV characters are dressed in similar clothing to their movie antecedents in order to make the vintage film believable to the TV audience. This episode lacks the pathos of the original film, which presented the characters in much less black and white shadows (there were no really bad guys in "Rocky Mountain," just doomed Confederate soldiers far from home attempting carry out a mission. In this episode, the bad guys have few redeeming qualities. The action is real enough and, while the acting is generally bogus, the story line is compelling enough to watch the whole thing through...
