Not the princess bride for sure, 21 February 2017
Author: pensman from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Typical, young(ish) spoiled princess sent to marry dashing military hero finds out he is very, very plump General Dubeauchaie (Sebastian Cabot). So she runs away trying to pass herself off as a local Spanish girl, Juanita. Cheyenne finds her and brings her to a rebel camp where anyone with a brain could tell in two minutes she has never done a hour's work in her life. And she knows nothing of local customs but is hot enough to sizzle the heart of one of the younger rebels, Rosario; but she has the hots for Cheyenne. When Cheyenne and the men from the rebel camp are captured, he is offered a deal by Empress Carlotta: Bring her back and no marriage will be forced upon the princess. However, the rebel women have their own deal: bring back their men and the princess will be returned unharmed.

Anyway, the general doesn't want her back figuring she's a soiled sister after spending nights in the mountains with Cheyenne. Only her duenna wants her back so she helps Cheyenne escape; and he rallies other male rebels to take up arms and attack the French and free the captured men. The princess is returned to Carlotta and she gives the princess freedom to marry whomever; but we know with her background, it won't be Cheyenne. It isn't. And Cheyenne sighs and watches her sail away, presumably back to Europe. Let's just say not a memorable performance by anyone in this episode.
