Fine work by Charlotte Stewart and David Canary
22 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fans of Star Trek are familiar with the work of D.C. Fontana and the writer's effort is more than acceptable for this action-packed episode of "Bonanza." Charlotte Stewart turns in a wonderful performance in one of only two appearances on the series. Her character finds herself in a tough situation, falling in love with a helpful, hard-working man (Candy Canaday) who recently shot her husband in self-defense. Candy falls for Lisa, a lovely young widow with beautiful, long blonde hair. We see their romance grow as Candy takes on the responsibilities that would have fallen to the late husband and father, leading to his desire to marry Lisa.

Excellent chemistry between Stewart and featured cast member David Canary highlights the episode, whose plot moves along at a nice pace. Although all of the Cartwrights appear as expected, Michael Landon has the smallest role this time out. He and Charlotte would later work together regularly when she took her role of Miss Beadle on Landon's series "Little House on the Prairie." Don't miss her fine effort here.
