  • Daring Yancy must save New Orleans from a devastating flood by destroying a levee! Bonus: A youthful Charles Bronson plays the villain!

    If only this wonderful little show were easily available on DVD! This episode alone might have prevented the disaster following Katrina...or not. Anyway, it is a marvelous program that is simultaneously a relic of its era and a charming, romantic, and sincere homage to the great American city of New Orleans. It was only on for a brief year, and though I was no more than a toddler when it showed, the unique images of Jock Mahoney's Yancy and his stoic Indian sidekick Pahoo-Ka-Ta-Wah so powerfully effected my psyche I never forgot them. Yet whenever I described the show to fellow Boomers, they shook their head. Nobody else remembered Yancy Derringer. At least not until the Great Mr. Gore invented the Internet! Huzzah and hoorah for us all! In 2009 I finally encountered someone with a single old VHS copy of this very episode, so I renewed my childhood thrill. CBS--please release this golden oldies treasure!moreless
