When Jay Novello is visiting the Ponderosa from Mexico he brings his daughter Joan Hackett with him. Usually visiting daughters are popular among the Cartwright boys, but in this case the overbearing manner of this to the manor born senorita is getting on everybody's nerve. Nothing pleases her about the Cartwrights in this episode.
It's Pernell Roberts who feels the brunt of her displeasure and he reacts like Petruchio with Katherine in The Taming Of The Shrew. There's also Cesare Danova who is promised Hackett by Novello, he might take things the wrong way.
Joan Hackett who co-starred with Charlton Heston in Will Penny was praised to the skies for her talent by Heston in his memoirs. She died way too young.
An interesting if somewhat classical Bonanza.
