THE BARBARA STANWYCK SHOW – Along the Barbary Coast – 1961

This is episode 22 from the 1961-62 series, THE BARBARA STANWYCK SHOW. The series ran for a total of 37 episodes. Each one was a stand alone story, some crime, some western, some comedy and so on.

In this episode, set in San Francisco in 1899, Stanwyck runs a saloon in the famous Barbary Coast area of town. She gets a visit from her former beau, Jerome Thor. Thor was a former San Francisco Police Detective just returned from serving in the Spanish American war. He has been gone for a year and a half.

He roars back into Stanwyck's life, and wants to take up where they left off before he joined the Army. This turns out to have a few complications involved. It seems that Stanwyck now has a partner in her saloon, Richard Eastham. Eastham is a right villain, who has beaten several murder charges. This is because witnesses keep turning up floating in the bay with knives in the back.

Thor is not amused with this at all. He rejoins the Police Department and sets his eyes on catching Eastham. Sure enough, Eastham tries to rob the cargo from a just docked ship. Shots are exchanged and a cop is killed. Eastham hides out at Stanwyck's apartment hoping to leave town when the heat cools.

Eastham, a sweet talker, has convinced Stanwyck that Thor has framed him for the murder out of jealousy. Thor now shows at Stanwyck's place and the swine, Eastham, puts a slug into Thor's shoulder. Stanwyck realizes that Eastham is really a killer, and puts several rounds into him from the gun Thor dropped.

The two make up and get hitched.

Robert (King Kong) Armstrong has a bit as the Chief of Police in this one. This is a quick little episode of a most enjoyable series.
