DANIEL BOONE – Lac Duquesne – 1964

This is the sixth episode of the long running 1964-70 series about the life of American frontiersman and explorer, Daniel Boone. The lead is played by Fess Parker. Also in the mix are Albert Salmi, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton.

A flatboat bring supplies to Fort Boonesborough is attacked by a local bandit party lead by ex-French officer, Emile Genest. Among the booty are five crates with 50 new rifles. The residents of the fort are afraid that these weapons might be sold to one of the less than friendly groups of natives in the area. Fess Parker, Albert Salmi and Ed Ames head out to try and retrieve the guns before they are sold to the unfriendly crowd. Boone is also annoyed that a big sow pig he ordered has been stolen.

The men track down Genest and capture him and several of his men. They however are overpowered by a new group of Genest's men. Genset and Boone, know each other from before Genset became a bandit. Genest, feeling in a good mood does not kill the three men. He takes their guns and tosses the men into the river. If they make it to shore, they live.

The now less than amused Parker and boys track the boat from the shore. They trail the bandits to the Frenchman's hideout. That night, the set off a decoy, clobber a guard and again take back the rifles. They load up the flatboat and hightail it back to the fort. The sow is also rescued from a fate worse than barbecue.

A pretty good episode that is nowhere as silly as I make it sound. There is some nice support by the always villainous, James Griffith, and an unbilled Mike Mazurki, as henchmen of Genest. Also in the cast are, Barry Kelly and Sarah Selby.

I recall as kid sitting around the old Philco black and white television, watching this series during the long winters.
