After the success of his 2 sitcoms, The Dick Van Dyke Show and The New Dick Van Dyke Show, comedian Dick Van Dyke, just like many others, decided to try his hand at a variety show. Titled Van Dyke and Company, it premiered in September 1976. It featured Dick Van Dyke standing in front of several doors, one of which a guest star would come out of. The show was best known for Dick's pantomime acting and a recurring skit about the dumbest family in the world, coincidently named "The Bright Family". Van Dyke & Co also featured appearances by the Los Angeles Mime Company. However, the show, like many other variety shows at the time, was cancelled rather quickly. Dick Van Dyke would later create a new sitcom, The Van Dyke Show.

In Kentucky, shortly before the Civil War, Chad's foster family dies during a cholera epidemic. After the funeral, neighbor Nathan Dillon claims that Chad's foster family owed him money. In order to recoup what's owed to him he tries to force Chad to become his indentured servant. When Chad refuses, Dillon and his son jump Chad and a fistfight ensues. Passerby neighbor Caleb Turner takes Chad's side and together they prevail. Caleb Turner offers Chad the chance to live with the Turners. Chad accepts to work on the Turner farm in order to pay for his keep. The arrangement is temporary because Chad intends to head for Lexington as soon as the logging season is over. Later, in Lexington, Chad meets Major Buford at an auction of thoroughbred horses. The Major, who is a childless, widowed landowner, likes Chad and adopts the young man. During the following months, Major Buford tries his best to turn Chad from a mountain man into a southern gentleman. However, at various social gatherings and society balls Chad senses that most rich families don't accept him as one of their own because of Chad's poor country background. Chad has a romance with Margaret Dean but her family rejects him due to his background. Eventually, Major Buford sends Chad to Lexington College. When the Civil War starts, Major Buford proudly presents Chad with the new uniform of a junior Confederate officer. However, Chad, facing a moral dilemma about slavery, tells a heart-broken Buford that he decided to join the Union Army. Crossing the Union lines, Chad seeks his old foster parent Caleb Turner who is a lieutenant in the Union Army. With Caleb's recommendation, Chad is accepted into the Union Army and becomes a mounted courier. He eventually reaches the rank of lieutenant. During an advance into Confederate territory, the Union Army reaches Lexington. There, Chad and Caleb Turner together with their men will finally face the Confederate defenders of Lexington. Among them are Major Buford and Margaret Dean's officer brother and father. These particular Confederates are almost like family to Chad. How will he react toward them during battle ?

Tim Ross, formerly an agent for the Justice Department, is traveling with the Doc Shaw medicine show as a sharpshooter. He runs into an old friend, Tex Weaver, who is working undercover to roundup a bank-robbing band. Later, while Tex is holding a coin for Tim to shoot out of his hand at a show exhibition, another shot is fired from the outer circle of spectators at the same time as Tim fires. Tex falls dead. Everybody, but Tim and saloon girl Goldie Harris, Tex's girlfriend, is convinced that Tim misfired and hit his friend. Goldie has picked up the coin Tex was holding and knows Tim did not miss his intended target. Tim rejoins the federal service and swears vengeance on the real killer, Runniyon, a member of the gang. Disguised as a Mexican caballero (with an added mustache and a large sombrero and a larger accent),Tim goes to Clearwater, where he meets Goldie, who sees through his disguise and agrees to help him find the killer of her lover. Tim's investigations convince him that the secret head of the bank robbers is bank examiner Wiley Taggart, with the active leader being saloon owner Buff Brayden. Tim sets a trap by getting a fake message to Taggart and Brayden that a large sum of money has been deposited at the bank in Bordertown. Tim gets the outlaws but not before Goldie gets a bullet in her shoulder saving his life. Grittier than most B-series westerns and Lois January's "Goldie" is a smoldering little number.

Idealistic doctoral graduates Bob (Dr. Robert E. Cornish), Louise and John plan their futures in pursuit of a formula to restore life to the dead. Bob and Louise wish to remain independent and pursue medical research free of corporate ties. John tries in vain to convince them that by joining him to work at Arnold Research Laboratories they could achieve more research in a year than they could in five as an independent research team. John leaves his friends for corporate pharmacology only to find the pace of his research is not progressing fast enough nor seems practical enough to suit Mr. Arnold. The final blow comes when he is told to turn his attention to creating a treated pig bristle brush to restore hair and prop up his bosses investments in pig processing. Disillusioned Dr. John Kendrick faces public ridicule as he promotes his theory to his peers and falls into a deep depression that costs him his private medical practice. Five years later the sudden passing of his wife, drives in into a paralytic depression and loses custody of his only son, Danny. Danny runs away with his dog scooter in tow to avoid being a ward of the state and hoping to return to life with his father. Danny is befriended by an east-side gang and allowed to stay in their club house with Scooter serving as watch dog. The gang tries to help Danny get his dad a job but the best they can come up with is as an elevator operator in a research lab. When his dad turns the job down, Danny takes it as a sign that his father is unwilling to get back to a state of normalcy and regain custody. Meanwhile Louise and Bob continue their research on life after death when they learn of John's fate from his former boss at Arnold Research. Louise visits John to share the success of Dr. Bob Cornish's own research. John takes this as ridicule and drives her off with self-righteous indignation. Danny's dog scooter is captured by the dog catcher and the gang tries to spring all the dogs to cover a rescue attempt. Danny and Scooter are caught but Danny gets away only to find one of his friends has broken a leg while running from the pound. Afraid to go home to his father, the injured boy is taken to the clubhouse and Danny enlists his father to help. Dr. John is too far gone and refuses to treat the boy, leaving the gang to think Danny has lie about his father being a great doctor. Danny begins to doubt his father himself when he learns that Scooter is being gassed by the dog catcher in retaliation for the rescue attempt. Danny again implores his dad to help revive Scooter to no avail. Danny runs away again vowing he no longer wishes to see his father. Upon reflection of how he has let down himself and Danny, Dr. John collects Scooters body and enlists the help of Dr. Bob Cornish and his team to revive him. The gang brings in their dogs as blood donors to create the resuscitation fluid. The gang then find Danny on the verge of jumping out a window in despair. What follows is purported to be an actual reanimation sequence performed by the real Dr. Robert Cornish and his team*. The result restores the faith of Dr. John in science and Danny in his father. *The story opens with a signed affidavit as follows: TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The actual experiment of bringing the dead back to life, which is part of the motion picture "Life Returns" was performed by myself and staff on May 22, 1934 at 11:45 P.M. in Berkeley, California. This part of the picture was originally taken to retain a permanent scientific record of our experiment. Everything shown is absolutely real. The animal was unquestionably and actually dead, and was brought back to life. May I offer my thanks to my assistants, Mario Margutti, William Black, Ralph Celmer and Roderic Kneder, who are shown carrying out their respective parts. Respectfully submitted, Dr. Robert E. Cornish
