The Yellow Rose:
The Complete Series
Largely dismissed as a Dallas rip-off when it was released in 1983, The Yellow Rose was canceled after only one season. But the show, set on a 200,000-acre West Texas ranch and starring Sam Elliott at his laconic, lady-killing best, has more in common with TV westerns of an earlier era. Thanks to a new DVD release, fans and new viewers can enjoy all 22 entertaining episodes.
