No pension plan
5 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This same plot premise of a long time ranch employee played here by Paul Fix was used in a classic Bonanza episode where long time cowhand Ed Begley was slowing up and would not recognize it. This was an era of rugged individualism and let's not forget that while the Barkleys are good employers as per the era there was no pension plan on The Big Valley any more than Ben Cartwright had one on the Ponderosa.

No pension plan, no social security you worked until you dropped or if you were lucky you had family to take care of you. Fix has that in daughter Virginia Gregg and granddaughter Brooke Bundy. But after Peter Breck is nearly injured trying to capture a wild stallion due to Fix's aging and infirmities Lee Majors tries to give him a more routine job, but Fix takes it as an insult and quits.

I wasn't that crazy about the ending, but you'll rarely see a portrait of pride and stubbornness more true than what Paul Fix gives here. And those facts I mentioned before should be uppermost in your mind when watching this story.
