Belly up to the bar for a shot of rough-and-tumble history as we reawaken the spirit of the Old West's one stop shops of sin.
Head back to the open range and the whistle stops of the Old West with this unique series that examines the tales and traditions of the frontier with an engineer's eye.
Saloons were the Wild West's strip malls of sin--your one-stop shop for gambling, booze, and sex. Behind those swinging doors hid technology that titillated and terrorized. In an action-packed hour, host David Carradine exposes the role that saloon engineering played in the death of the West's most prolific killer, John Wesley Hardin. We'll also explore the technology of the saloon brawl, and detail the secret techniques used by bare-knuckle saloon boxers as they fought in the bloodiest prizefights in American history.
