Trivia

The brass bed in Barbara's room is a frequently used prop. With its gold and red paint, it's distinctive and easy to spot, and viewers can see it many times in future episodes - in other saloon rooms, in hotel rooms, in farm houses, in the Barkley guest room, and even (though it hardly seems his style) in Heath's room in The Big Valley: The Lost Treasure (1966).

Goofs

After Nick is forced to sign his name, the next scene is Jarrod entering Barbara's room. As Jarrod is closing the door the shadow of the boom mic can be seen on the right upper wall. See more »

"Barbary Red" was my introduction to the series known as "The Big Valley"
22 August 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

To celebrate his birthday, Nick Barkley (Peter Breck) is out on the town with a couple of pals at the Barbary Saloon. There he meets the beautiful owner, Barbary Red (Jill St. John), who serves the drinks...next thing they know, they're in a holding cell awaiting a ship for forced work where the man in charge of their kidnapping, Jack Thatcher (George Kennedy), brutalizes them. When lawyer brother Jerrold Barkley (Richard Long) gets wind of this, he sweet-talks former client Barbary Red, or Barbara, to have dinner with him. Other brother Heath (Lee Majors) also tries to help by pretending to be drunk in order to rescue Nick. I'll stop there and just say that I thought this was a pretty good ep of this western series which I had previously seen the opening credits of before but never a whole ep until now. Oh, and seeing movie star Barbara Stanwyck as the matriarch was also a treat though she didn't do much except worry about one of her sons here. And a pre-"Dynasty" Linda Evans sure looked cute here as well. As for the guest stars, Ms. St. John was also a looker and wasn't too bad in her role but Kennedy really was effective in his villainous role without chewing the scenery too much. So on that note, "Barbary Red" was a pretty good ep of "The Big Valley".
