"Under the Red Rock Rim Rim, Under the Red Rock Rim
5 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Bonanza episode descends into the Gothic horror genre with a pair of performances that make your skin crawl from guest stars Edward Andrews and Gregory Walcott.

Drifter Walcott is given a job at the Ponderosa after saving Pernell Roberts's life on the desert. He's a night creature which in itself is not good when you have to get up before daylight to get to work. He rides at night and sings with self accompaniment on the guitar. He sings that Red Rock Rim song almost to annoyance, but Walcott's voice is pleasing enough.

But it becomes creepy when he's accused of first murdering a widow and robbing her of$10,000.00 in savings. After which he's accused of another murder this one of Virginia Christine the wife of Reverend Edward Andrews who is obsessed with building a pure church with no sinning allowed.

Andrews is obsessed with having the kind of church that Jerry Falwell or John Hagee might have today given what was around in the old west to build.

It's all quite a puzzle, but Adam Cartwright figures the guy that saved his life just isn't a murderer.

Andrews and Walcott are worth seeing this Bonanza story for.
