Unspeakable tragedy
3 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm only sad that Barbara Stanwyck couldn't have been worked into this particular Big Valley episode. It would have been great to see her share the small screen with Anne Baxter.

Heath Barkley is badly wounded on the trail in an encounter with a bandit carrying the payroll for Arch Johnson's mine. He's wounded badly but brings in the payroll to the town of Midas which is a company town for said mine and mine owner.

But the town has suffered an unspeakable tragedy when 25 men are killed in a mine cave in. The Barkley family has a minority interest in the mine and Peter Breck is there to do a little fact finding on his own. But he gets hostility from both the townspeople and from Arch Johnson who is a real robber baron type.

As for the rest all I can say is that the rest of the story turns on the mistaken impression that Lee Majors is one of the payroll robbers.

Baxter makes her scenes crackle as the new widow and leader of the town's bitter hatred against the mine and its owner Arch Johnson.

Just wish Stanwyck was there too.
