Hondo - Spun Off from the John Wayne Film, The Complete Series is Coming to DVD! **UPDATED**


An MOD set from the Warner Archive is coming this summer

In 1953, John Wayne starred in the classic Western film Hondo, based on a story by Louis L'Amour. Wayne's own Batjac Productions co-produced the film. In 1967, Batjac spun off the film into a TV series, also called Hondo. It starred Ralph Taeger (Klondike, Acapulco) and Noah Beery, Jr. (The Rockford Files). Scheduled by the ABC network to run in the same time slot as Star Trek and Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., the program only ran for a single season of 17 hour-long episodes.

Now the short-lived 1967 series is coming to DVD! The studio hasn't formally announced the title, but VideoETA (a website produced by home video distributor Ingram Entertainment) shows that Hondo - The Complete Series is in-the-works from the Warner Archive Collection as an MOD (manufacture on demand) title. No details have been provided so far, but they show a release date of June 13th, and a cost of $39.99 SRP. This may not be finalized information yet, though, and could be subject to change. Stay tuned! In the meantime, here's the cover art:


UPDATE (5/19) Last night, Warner has put this item up for pre-order at their WBshop.com online store. The listing there confirms the price and cover art we've provided, but instead shows an earlier official release date of June 6.
