Remember the days when a hero was a hero? Especially in the realm of Westerns, where the good guys didn’t wear spandex suits with capes. They ore a big hat, carried a six shooter, and never missed with their bravado, and sense of justice.
One nearly forgotten hero was Lightning Jim, and his trusty sidekick, Whitey Larson. . None of the shows I have are dated, but come from sometime in the 1940’s. Kids were the target market, so there’s plenty of horse chases, gunplay, and fist fighting action as the hero steps in to befriend the helpless person in need.
In the case of: Lightning Jim – Races Against Death. Episode 5.
