THE QUEST starring Kurt Russell & Tim Matheson



The Quest, a 15-episode Western television series which aired on NBC beginning September 22, 1976, starred Kurt Russell and Tim Matheson as brothers Morgan and Quentin Bodine, respectively, who are seeking the whereabouts of their long-lost sister, Patricia, being held by the Cheyenne. Morgan, known as "Two Persons", was a captive of the Cheyenne for eight years until he was freed by the United States Army. In the story, Quentin is a young physician from San Francisco. The pair crosses thousands of miles across the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains in search of Patricia; hence, the title The Quest. Much of the filming was in Arizona.[1] It is unknown if the two found their sister, as the program was quickly cancelled. A few of the episodes never aired. There was also a two-hour introductory television movie.

Westerns lost favor with the networks by the middle 1970s, as NBC's Bonanza and CBS's Gunsmoke folded within two years of each other. The short-lived The Quest was nominated for a prime time Emmy Award for costume design. One episode, "Hatcher's Drive" won a Spur Award from the Western Writers of America for script writers Katharyn Powers and Michael Michaelian. The writers tied with Jim Byrnes of ABC's How the West Was Won.

Numerous actors of experience and reputation guest starred on The Quest: John Anderson, Morgan Woodward, Cameron Mitchell, Keenan Wynn, Brian Keith, Neville Brand, Read Morgan (formerly of The Deputy), Will Hutchins (ABC's Sugarfoot), and Gary Lockwood, formerly of ABC's Follow the Sun and NBC's The Lieutenant.
