It's the cast that makes this worth watching
12 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pleasant enough 70's TV movie is made much more memorable and entertaining by the quality of the cast.

Buddy Ebsen is all folksy charm forsaking the Jed Clampett bit for a somewhat more realistic version of a homesteader with Jack Elam doing the trusty sidekick role that was his staple.

It's the actresses playing the daughters who really give this one snap. Sandra Dee, in the last really active year of her career before slipping into a sad almost hermit existence that continued up to her death, is drolly humorous, Lesley Ann Warren sexy and saucy and Karen Valentine her usual spunky self. It's their chemistry and interactions which makes this a fine comic western. One of those wonderful opportunities that TV movies of the period provided to see a group of highly talented stars of different levels of fame gathered together.

Extremely successful when aired this led to a sequel that none of the three ladies returned for and is as bland as this is charming.
