One of landons best.
24 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this when it first appeared on network. The scene where Roscoe Lee Brownes grandchild dies in his arms dropping coins to the ground he raised to buy him a present stood out in my mind. It was such a heartfelt scene I remember crying over. No one could write a tearjerker better than Michael Landon. If you doubt this watch other shows he scripted including Forever, Don't Cry my Son, The Wish, The Sound of Sadness. Mitch Vogel did an excellent job as well he was growing into a good actor. I remember as a kid seeing some things on the screen and to this day remembered. Sunday night at 9 pm I had the TV in my room. I think Landon had an unofficial position as story editor the last 5 or 6 years on the show and you could see his writing on stories that were written by others.
