Fire racing toward the Barkleys
23 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

All three of the Barkley men are in the town of Granite City where one humongous forest fire is racing for not just Granite City, but Stockton and eventually the Barkley holdings. In more immediate danger are the holdings of a rich foreign born Marquis played by Carl Esmond.

To say that Esmond holds himself truly above the rest of the hoi ploi of Granite City is an understatement. He can't quite get used to a society where there are no titles of nobility. But as we know from history the aristocracy is not above doing a little pimping to achieve their ends. I do love how Peter Breck tells him off.

An expedition of sorts with explosives man Stu Erwin in charge goes to make a fire break with some mighty unstable TNT. Erwin himself is a bit ridiculous declaring his love for a saloon girl old enough to be his granddaughter. I found that part of the story a bit ridiculous.

Still this all leads to a much better part 2.
