We search for a man named Jim Sonnett and the tales folks tell may be true; Most call him gunman and killer; He's the son I hardly knew. I raised Jim's boy from the cradle; 'till the day he said to me, "I have to go find my father". And I reckon that's the way it should be. So we ride, Jim's boy and me. The Guns of Will Sonnett was notable for being one of super producer Aaron Spelling's first television series and series star Walter Brennan's (The Real McCoys) last. Despite a lot of promotion by ABC, the series never really caught on with the viewers.
