Sensitively Done
8 October 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

By the late 50's, TV was beginning to risk dealing with sensitive social issues. Here the issue is inter-marriage issuing in a half-Indian child. Mrs. Philips (Stewart) was abducted by Cheyennes, after which she has a child by one of the braves. Now she's escaped only to find rejection from much of Dodge because of her half-breed little girl. Matt befriends her, as does Jep Hunter (Karnes) who's lost his own wife to Indian captivity. However, Mrs. Philips's Boston husband now joins others in rejecting her. Meanwhile, the little girl, Fawn, cowers in uncertainty.

The episode is sensitively done and honest enough to deal with much of Dodge's rejection. There are few surprises. Nonetheless, sincere performances and a thoughtful script make up for the general absence of customary action.
