Is It A Surprise This Was The End of the Series?
13 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched this episode, anticipating seeing something of Phoebe Tyler Wallingford, played by Ruth Warrick on All My Children, which premiered this same year, Much like Dame Judith Anderson in Man Called Horse, Warrick was completely immersed in the Indian Wise Woman, right down to her sparkling blue eyes. Not saying the performance was convincing, it was intriguing to envision old Phoebe doing this.

Even more amusing was the immediately recognizable Paul Mantee as some sort of Indian named Atewa. Stood out like the royal sore thumb.

With a minimum of Fess Parker shown here, the entire episode was nearly taken over by Med Flory (a poor man's Henry Fonda is what he seemed like to me. Imagine Fonda striving for slapstick comedy) and Victor French (who seemed to be channeling Goober Pyle).

Flory was impossible to listen to over and over. French was something to ponder, thinking this would go on to be Isaiah Edwards on Little House On The Prairie.

Pity nothing more could have been seen of Warrick, but this is what women of this era considered to be 'performing'.

In the end, the day is saved and those in love are together.

Still, it should be no surprise this was the end of this show. For that I would give it ten stars. It went out with a glorified whimper.

And no, don't look for much of Indian authenticity either. Granted, I wouldn't know, but I have a suspicion this isn't it. Maybe costumes or something.

But Paul Mantee? Forget it.
