The Center of attention
4 July 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I knew someone like Diane Baker's character in real life in the gay world. He was someone who was obsessed with being the center of attention no matter what the situation. With Baker this obsession almost splits the Barkley family.

Peter Breck goes east on business and meets Baker who sweeps him off his feet. He's ready to get married and brings her back to The Big Valley. But Baker's like Scarlett O'Hara another self absorbed party girl and she gets bored with ranch life. She starts flirting with Lee Majors and I don't think I have to tell you the rest.

Nick Barkley was one of the toughest western characters ever on big screen and small with one quick temper to match. Fortunately cooler heads including Heath's prevail.

This episode belongs to Peter Breck and to guest star Diane Baker.
