Goofs

During the first minute opener, after the family disembarks from the carriage, the camera pans slightly skywards to capture them walking towards the house. At the top left of that view - a telephone or power line pole with wires on ceramic insulators is seen above the treetops, very close to the Barclay house set. Phone and power lines were not yet in use during this era, although the cross country telegraph had been installed. See more »

Jarrod Barkley's conscience
29 February 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A pair of the nastiest big screen villains ever, Albert Salmi and Bruce Dern highlight this Big Valley story. Salmi is the focus here, but Dern is around to instigate trouble.

Years before when he was a prosecutor, Richard Long prosecuted Albert Salmi for a murder. Salmi did nine years in the joint before evidence was produced clearing him.

Not too many people especially those of the legal profession would have the conscience of a Jarrod Barkley. He gets the family to hire him on at the ranch and Salmi actually shows promise as a blacksmith. But many including Dern resent having him around.

Salmi etches a fine character that will linger with you. He's still a tough dangerous man, but a bit more philosophical with age. I've known people like that who get a bad start in life and can never quite catch up. You see it in his voice and face.

Salmi and Dern are reason enough to mark this Big Valley episode.
