Tiger Lil
30 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been looking for the title of this episode of "Death Valley Days" for years. I remember watching it and thinking that Mariette Hartley was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. I always thought the title was Diamond Lil. Imagine my surprise when I finally found it on IMDb. Now I need to fine out where I can see it. Is there any outlet or store or television/cable channel that carries old episodes of "Death Valley Days"? I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out. I think that this series was probably as close to the real stories of the old west as Hollywood could make it. They always cleaned up the cowboys too much and the women could certainly not have afforded the ball gowns that they wore. Just the same I enjoyed the series very much. Thanks, Karen
