Riverboat (1959–1961)

In the series, Captain Grey Holden and his crew navigate the vessel called the Enterprise principally, along the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio rivers. Some episodes are set in the eastern end of the American West or in the Midwest. Holden and his men encounter interesting characters along the way, including U.S. President Zachary Taylor, General Winfield Scott and a pre-presidential Abraham Lincoln. One episode focuses indirectly on the Texan Revolution of 1836. Unlike most westerns, which are set after the American Civil War, the story's time frame precedes the sectional conflict, and includes the 1830s and 40s. Stars: Darren McGavin, Burt Reynolds, Dick Wessel, Jack Lambert, Noah Beery, Jr.
