Stagecoach terror
21 November 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The women regulars in The Big Valley are featured in this episode. Linda Evans is visiting friends in another town and witnesses three brutal killings and goes into hysterical shock. Barbara Stanwyck comes to town to bring her back to the Barkley estate. On the way back they are in a coach with gambler Richard Anderson, drummer James Westerfield, and young soldier Paul Petersen with Kevin Hagen driving the stagecoach.

The two who did the brutal killings don't know that Evans is in shock and can't speak and wage a campaign of terror against the inhabitants of the coach. Some make it back, some don't, but Stanwyck proves that age and gracious living haven't softened her up at all.

Evans is great registering terror without any dialog and Stanwyck is working on all cylinders showing both a mother's concern for her grown child and the toughness that made her mistress of The Big Valley. This one is a really good episode and shouldn't be missed.
