Judy Carne, Pete Duel's "Love on a Rooftop" co-star, plays one of three Boston spinsters (two young adults and a late-middle-age chaperone; the other two women are buried in the "With" billing) supposedly taking a Wild West tour before returning home. Leslie O'Hara is secretly holding a letter, which Heyes saves from a bandit gang including bumbling Squint (Mills Watson, doing his first Glen Larson show and auditioning for "The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo"). Leslie wants the letter back and is willing to pay $500 for it, sparking the boys' attention. Leslie springs the boys from jail, which gets a deputy sheriff's attention. Also on the trail is a mysterious, persnickety man from the Federal Government. It turns out everyone is on the trail of money from a bank robbery and the letter is a key. But when we say "everyone," we mean it ... Written by Peter Harris

Leslie O'Hara: [while riding in a stagecoach] Oh, we came to look at the wild West.
Hannibal Heyes: I hate to disappoint you, but it's not like that any more. You couldn't be safer in your own backyard.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: I wouldn't say that Joshua. One morning three weeks ago, we were on a stage that was held up. By a band of very desperate men.
Margaret Chapman: You mean that could happen to us?
Hannibal Heyes: It could happen to you but not to us. Not twice in three weeks.

Everybody's a Thief!
9 October 2015 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

A fun watch. The boys meet three women (two younger, one older) on a stage and end up entangled in their plans to find a buried treasure - the location of which was revealed in a letter. (The letter just didn't happen to be mailed to the woman trying to get it back after the coach is robbed.) Sooner or later, everyone and their brother is after the treasure-hunting party. I doubt even the Treasury agent is who he says he is! There's a nice little twist at the end, from a completely unexpected direction.

Hilary Thompson and Judy Carne are the two young single "ladies," chaperoned by Meg Wyllie as the older spinster. In case you don't recognize her name, you - especially the Star Trek Original Series fans

  • will recognize her face...vaguely...but she played the Talosian

Keeper on Talos IV in the two-part Season One episode, The Menagerie. For years, the original pilot episode (The Cage) was not shown as it had a very different crew, led by Capt. Chris Pike, but the writers found a way to chop it up and splice it into the later two-part episode. Misses Carne and Thompson were all over the place on 1960s sitcoms and Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In as well. Here, they act well above common expectations and turn in quite accomplished appearances.
