Thirteen Stories from the Wild West novels by O. Henry and Bret Harte. Even in the early days of America, there were all sorts of weird creatures: Two bankers, for example, take to cash from the bank to deceive a bank auditor about the money kept in their homes. The brave Sam drops a declaration, which is not easy for him, about what is going on with the hard-drinking old lady who has recently moved into his house. More stories tell about robbers and bandits who terrorize the Wild West.
This series was shown on West German television from June 10, 1970 to December 29, 1970.
