Variation on Of Mice And Men
18 November 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

John Steinbeck might have appreciated this Bonanza episode as it was a different take on his classic Of Mice And Men. Walter Burke and Dick Peabody play the George and Lennie characters respectively.

Who happen on Lorne Greene by chance as Ben Cartwright is stuck in a mudhole. Peabody lifts the buckboard with cargo and Cartwright all together.

The variation here is that Burke is the one killed by a wild horse and Peabody can't function without him. Try as all the Cartwrights can to get him to adjust.

In the end he kidnaps a young boy and keeps calling him by Burke's character name and what happens to Lon Chaney, Jr. in Of Mice And Men is what happens to Peabody.

Both Peabody and Burke turn in a pair of fine performances as the guest stars really shine in this story.
