DANIEL BOONE – The First Beau -1965

This is the 43rd 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.

A massive blizzard has hit the settlement at Fort Boonesborough. The locals all gather inside the fort and pool their food etc for a long stay. Hunting parties go out looking for fresh game, but they find nothing. Needless to say everyone is getting on everyone else's nerves.

The food problem turns critical when it is discovered that diseased raccoons have been gorging themselves in the meat storeroom. The remaining meat has to be destroyed. Adding to the Fort's problems is the arrival of an Indian Chief, Valentin de Vargas and his pregnant wife, Aliza Gur.

De Vargas and Aliza Gur are key members of a solution to a peace treaty with several warring tribes. It is the best interest of the settlers to help them. Needless to say Gur could be having the baby any moment now.

In the mix is Jay Silverheels as a Indian who wants to kill Gur. He wants the war between the tribes to continue. De Vargas and Silverheels settle their differences with some handy sharp pieces of steel. De Vargas heads off to fetch help from the nearest tribe. The Indians return to the fort with enough provisions to see them through the blizzard.

Sort of a feel good episode laid on for the Christmas season. It is much better than the episode broadcast for the Thanksgiving holiday.
