Title Card - WIDE COUNTRY

NBC Network
1962 - 1963
Drama
60 Minutes

Contemporary western adventure about the Guthrie brothers, Mitch (Earl Holliman) and Andy (Andrew Prine) who traveled the rodeo circuit in competition for the Gold Buckle rodeo trophy. To get to each competition Mitch and Andy drove in a white 1962 Ford Country Sedan station wagon.

Along the way, Mitch and Andy encountered a variety of strangers and some people from their past, like a weary, old rodeo rider (Victor Jory) who once cared for Mitch and Andy when they were kids. They repaid his kindness by helping him rope and break a wild stallion. In end, the old man let the horse run free and Mitch and Andy were off to another rodeo competition.

While Mitch was a champion rodeo rider, he didn't want his brother to follow in his foot steps and so he pushed him to enroll in college.
