Romantic drama following the fortunes of a drifter named Beaudray Demerille (Peter Fonda) who wins a young orphan named Wanda (14 year old Brooke Shields) in a poker game and takes her gold... See full summary »
Sally Fergus was a cantankerous, tobacco-chewing, rough-talking, hard-drinking old lady on her way west to pan for gold in California. Accompanying her and her mule-driven wagon was young gunfighter Cyrus Pike, who was looking forward to the riches of California, and was often chagrined by the constant delays as Sally decided to meddle in the lives of those that they met.

The lead character reminded me of a great aunt of mine.Sally's voice & mannerisms were just like hers.My aunt also dipped snuff.This was sort of a Western Route 66,Sally & Cyrus were headed for California & stopped along the way to help others.If this show had been on the air any time up to about the late '60's it would probably have been a hit.By 1974,the Western was fading off the small screen,which was the reason for Dirty Sally not catching on.It had very good writing,acting,& story lines with a mixture of drama & humor.One of the best half season wonders in the history of television.Two top notch actors who were in the lead & supporting roles are no longer with us.RIP Dack Rambo & Jeanette Nolan.
