After falsely accusing a Gypsy vineyard worker of theft and injuring him in a fight, Nick reluctantly agrees to accompany the man's wife, daughter, and mother-in-law on a journey to the daughter's arranged marriage. Along the way, harassed by local townspeople, Nick finds himself mistaken for a Gypsy and learns what it's like to be one of them. He also discovers some truths about Gypsies, the people who hate them simply because of prejudice, and his own bigotry. Written by Anonymous

I Guess I Thought It Was Bonanza
14 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Sara Jane, I told ya git back inside the house 'fore that gypsy kidnaps ya, cuts yer ears off and sells ya!" How could such a simple piece of dialogue stick with me for so many decades, as I couldn't even remember the show I had seen it on. An old western was all I knew.

Was it Bonanza? Could be. High Chapparel? Maybe.

Nope, it was The Big Valley.

Words uttered by none other than Royal Dano about a gypsy woman (played by non-gypsy Louise Sorel) and who was Sara Jane? Nnne other than Eve Plumb, as other reviews have noted.

Sara Jane approached Sorel in the barn one time, Dano told her to get back inside. She crept her way back to Sorel and this was when Dano uttered lines only Dano could speak.

Jan Brady fled back thru the barn door as quickly as she could.

Dano had to be one of the most amazing actors ever. To hear him take cheesy or wasted dialogue and make it work (with the voice if nothing else), is a marvel to behold.

And he was never recognized for his talent or contribution.
