Off the wall ending
17 February 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's sad that a powerful performance by Barbara Stanwyck has to wasted in a story that is completely spoiled by a rotten and incredible ending. She's in quite a pickle but Victoria Barkley is one strong willed woman who will survive any way she can.

She's in a church when an earthquake strikes and she's buried in the church cellar with a former Barkley ranch hand who likes to drink too much and a pregnant Modoc Indian girl who's very very due. Charles Bronson is the former Barkley employee who doesn't relish being trapped with the Barkley matriarch and Alizia Kar is the pregnant woman.

The church was built on top of old mine tunnels and the three look for a way out. There's some crackling dialog with Stanwyck and Bronson who I believe never worked together on the big screen. Kar is a truly sad figure who was impregnated by a frequent white visitor to her reservation.

I can't say more, but trust me the ending is ridiculous. And I guess I can say Stanwyck survives for more episodes of The Big Valley.
