Jinx comes to the Barkleys
17 October 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Linda Evans takes center stage in this Big Valley story about a man with a reputation as a jinx comes to work at the Barkley ranch as a fruit picker. Among their many sidelines is growing fresh fruit and this was the days before Latinos predominate in the field of agricultural day laborers. Marty Allen who had just broken up with Steve Rossi as a comedy team and this was his first venture on his own.

As he rides up to the Barkley ranch having been hired in town he sure doesn't impress Peter Breck, but Linda Evans thinks he's kind of sweet and feels sorry for him. She turns out to be his only friend in the place as a run of bad luck befalls everyone else but here. In the end Allen starts believing in himself and gets a bit of assistance from some unseen power in the end.

Marty Allen strikes just the right note as the poor schnook who thinks he has his own personal rain cloud. He makes this Big Valley episode worthwhile to watch.
