The Guns of Will Sonnett: Season 01 ()

Seen on ABC's Friday-night schedule during its first season, The Guns of Will Sonnett firmly establishes its premise in the opening episode "Ride the Long Trail". Ex-Cavalry scout Will Sonnett (Walter Brennan) and his grandson Jeff (Dack Rambo) have left their home and begun wandering through the west, in search of Will's son and Jeff's dad Jim Sonnett, who since running away 19 years earlier had attained a reputation as a deadly gunslinger. With both the law and his many enemies on Jim's trail, Will and Jeff hope to catch up with the prodigal Sonnett before someone else does, and in this pursuit they visit a number of tiny western outposts and alter the lives of innumerable strangers. Though Jim remains an elusive figure, he does make a handful of fleeting appearances, beginning with the sixth episode, "Message at Noon." Since most of the 26 first-season episodes follow essentially the same storyline, viewers are advised to ignore the plots and revel in the bravura performance of three-time Oscar winner Walter Brennan, to say nothing of the series' fascinating crop of guest stars. In "A Bell for Jeff Sonnett", a young Charles Grodin plays a brash gunslinger who sews a tiny bell on his hat for each man hie kills. Jack Nicholson is a trigger-happy punk in "A Son for a Son", which also features Bing Russell, father of Kurt Russell. Dennis Hopper essays a similar "punk" role in another episode, "Find a Sonnett, Kill a Sonnett". And in "The Warriors", two future 1970s TV stalwarts, The Duke of Hazzard's Denver Pyle and Dallas' Jim Davis, share screen space with an icon of the 1950s, Captain Midnight star Richard Webb. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis
