New Orleans Honeymoon

DANIEL BOONE – Perilous Journey -1965

This is the 42nd 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, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton. This episode is from season two, which was the first season to be filmed in colour.

In this episode, the series time line jumps forward 25 plus years to 1803. Daniel Boone (Fess Parker) and his wife (Patricia Blair) are heading to New Orleans to have the Honeymoon they never had. On the way there, a US Government agent catches up and wants to deliver an important message to Boone.

Just before the man, Stacy Harris, delivers the papers, he is shot by several men hiding in the shadows. Harris lives long enough to pass on the papers and a message to Parker to take with him to New Orleans. They are of great importance to the fate of the nation. He will be met by a man there with the password.

Parker grabs the first horse he can find, and takes off to New Orleans. Blair is not amused with this idea, and follows by coach.

In New Orleans, several rather nasty types, Alan Napier, John Orchard and Steve Ihnat try to relieve Parker of the papers. This turns out to be a no go, as the man Boone is to meet, Albert Carrier, arrives in the old nick of time. Carrier and his men dispatch the villains. Carrier turns out to be the Marquis De Lafayette. Lafayette is here to complete the sale of the Louisiana Purchase to the USA.

Not a very good episode at all. The jumping into the future really makes no sense series wise. Well, I guess every series hits a bump on the road during its run.
