Watch Tales of Wells Fargo
- 6 Seasons
The Western adventure series Tales of Wells Fargo is a classic TV program that presents a fictionalized version of the American West in the 1800s. Agent Jim Hardie shifts over its history from being mostly an agent helping Wells Fargo cope with bad guys to being the owner of a ranch near San Francisco who still does some agent work. Set in the 1870s and 1880s, the series starred the Oklahoma native Dale Robertson as special agent Jim Hardie, noted at the time as "the left-handed gun". The series development was influenced by the biography of Wells Fargo detective Fred J. Dodge. The concept of Tales of Wells Fargo, a company troubleshooter in the American West, was also adapted by the syndicated series Pony Express, co-starring Grant Sullivan as detective Brett Clark, which aired in the 1959-1960 season, nearly coinciding with the centennial of the Pony Express.
