A highly dramatic story
26 August 2013 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- Daniel Boone, Cain's Birthday- Part 1, 1965. A french officer wishes to capture Boonesborough and it's valley for France by using many American Indian tribes to supply the army. He doesn't count on Daniel Boone and his neighbors craftiness and resolve. He loses.

*Special Stars- Fess Parker, Albert Salmi, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Darby Hinton, Veronica Cartwright. Guest Star- Cesare Danova.

*Theme- Standing up to tyrants is everyones decision.

*Trivia/location/goofs- TV show episode. The first eps of a two part story. Locations: 20th Century Fox Ranch, Las Virgenes Blvd or Malibu Canyon park is where these stream and rocky out cropping shots took place. That is where many famous 20th Century Fox shows: shot TV's 'MASH' and the TV show & feature film 'Planet of the Apes'. That rocky outcropping of geological 'conglomerate' materials is famous with university geology academics and goes through the Santa Monica Mts chain. The fort was on the sound stage and wide fort outdoors shots at the Iverson Ranch in Chatsworth, Calif. When they open the fort doors too WIDE, you can clearly see into an empty fort. The wall was a facade with nothing in back of it, just wide landscapes and tree topped oak hills miles beyond.

*Emotion- A highly dramatic story involving a foreign attack on Booneborough accompanied by many differing Anmerican Indian tribes of the time. Some fine script writing with Daniel Boone using his cunning and guile to keep the town safe until help is scheduled to arrive from Ft Detroit along with the return of the captured townsmen. Mostly an action filled plot line.

*Based On- Daniel Boone legends during the 1700's.
