A great story with a great cast.
8 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode not only proved to be one of the better shows of the series but also an interesting script that is just as entertaining today as it was in the 1960's.

Victoria is kidnapped by a gang of criminals lead by Sam Beldon. Seems that Victoria is thought to be the local school-teacher and is brought back to the hide-out not for ransom or mischief but to teach Sam Beldon to read.

Sam Beldon (Harold Stone) is an aging criminal that knows that his life is approaching the autumn years. So Sam is wanting to do something that he never has been able to do all his life- read.

When they kidnap Victoria (Barbara Stanwyck)they never thought the would get such a head-strong teacher. But Victoria soon learns that the conflict she faces may not be larger than the conflict that Sam Beldon is due to face. Even though the words are never spoken, it becomes apparent for the viewer that there is a connection between Victoria and Beldon.

When the episode concludes, the viewers know that they have witness an exceptional good performance for any episode. Of all the 'The Big Valley' episode- this is a must watch show.
