pathetic production with good stars after their sunset
11 November 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Tom Keene looks tired, as does half the cast of this half-hour TV pilot directed and written by the infamous Ed Wood, Jr. I bought a copy of the movie from Ray Dennis Steckler, and the best part of it was a little piece he (or someone) had taped on the end which included a commercial for Remington ammunition with Keene Duncan shooting at various forms of candy and food products (presumably items with which the juvenile audience could relate to in terms of size).

As for the pilot, it is crudely produced, with typical terrible Wood direction. At one point, the aged comedy actor simply lurches off the screen at a really odd angle. Others have posited that this show was equivalent to other material on the air at the time: I'd like to see it. Of course, all I've really been able to find is "The Lone Ranger" and "The Gene Autry Show", and on these shows professional directors and photographers were utilized, even if the writing was pretty standard. Ed Wood can be an interesting writer, but his direction is awful by any measure, and it shows even in this tiny prairie saga.
