a young newspaper editor who is conducting a campaign to unseat the town’s “tinhorn mayor.” The mayor is backed by a “gun-happy sheriff” and a “whiskey-soaked judge.” The editor’s campaign receives a boost when he is joined by a former Texas Ranger and “three of the fightin’-est straight shooters around. This western movie premiered on October 7 of 1969 as the ABC Movie of the Week. There is a sequel called The Over-the-Hill Gang Rides Again that was produced the following year with Brennan, Wills, Buchanan, Devine, and Burt Mustin reprising their roles while Fred Astaire replaced O’Brien as the second lead. Both movies doubled as a pilot for a projected weekly series but ABC ultimately passed on the idea probably because westerns were on there way out more than likely because of the expense involved in producing them!
