Lady Chadwick
25 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Margaret Hayes guest stars as an American part of the English landed gentry and an old flame of Ben Cartwright's visits the Ponderosa. The addition of Little Joe is a surprise, when she and Ben were hot and heavy Adam and Hoss were kids and Ben hadn't married Michael Landon's mom.

At the same time the Ponderosa starts getting squeezed financially and the Cartwrights are having a cash flow problem. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Lady Chadwick's visit and the financial problems are connected somehow. Other than for Lorne Greene who sees the woman he once might have married.

Hayes and John Alderson as her accountant/servant give a good account of themselves. This episodes even a Cartwright as wise as Ben can be a fool for love sometimes.
