So much ado!
6 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The boys want to go see a questionable play that they believe their father would not approve of. But in actuality, the actress is an old flame of their father's. The boys are appalled that he would be interested in an actress and told their Pa they didn't like it. Basically, their father told them it was none of their business and he could date who he wanted.

Adam goes in and tries to seduce her to prove that she's immoral, but she sends him away. Then Little Joe thinks he can seduce her. It's here that an old boyfriend steps in and wants to teach the Cartwright's a lesson. Since the old boyfriend is a wrestler, this could be a bad thing...

When Ben kicks him out of the woman's room, he goes after Little Joe, knowing the easiest way to get Ben to fight, and he does.

The man who played Regan has a unique voice. I recognized it from an episode of The Rifleman where he does another outstanding fist fight with Lucas McCain.
