Giving her all
16 July 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In the testosterone driven Big Valley Linda Evans sometimes got lost in the shuffle. But this one was her story. Her's and that of guest star Tom Tryon in a rather old fashioned Victorian morality story.

Tryon is a speculator come to take advantage of a drought in the Big Valley where all but the Barkleys are without water and the Barkleys running low on that. He gives out mortgages for ranch supplies and looks to pick up some bargains when the ranchers can't pay.

The other thing Tryon likes in the Big Valley is Linda Evans. Despite Barbara Stanwyck's warnings about men like Tryon, Evans is charmed by him.

This story has a rather unbelievable ending that would never fly in today's television market. Still Tryon and Evans do stand out for their performances and Evans for her willingness to sacrifice all for peace and prosperity in the Big Valley.
