Fine acting in this surprising episode.
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Was pleasantly surprised by this episode as the story turned out to be an interesting tale that was entertaining from the beginning till the end. It began when a drifter, Yankton, is sweet on a wealthy farmer's daughter that is not a raging beauty that we are accustom to seeing. The relationship began as a way to get back at the father, Will Donovan, over a card game but Yankton ended up falling in love with the plain girl, Emma Donovan.

The story does not just follow the relationship between Yankton and the daughter but also goes into the relationship between Will and his wife. You may say that is not an subject matter that usually causes appeal but the way this script is written made the subject powerful and keep the viewers on their toes.

It was nice to see Forrest Tucker play something other than a drunken buffoon as he used his dramatic skills to make the audience part of the father's life. Nancy Olson seemed very cold in her part but when we get to the story's end the reason will be revealed. Nice acting all around for a story that was much better than expected. Good watch.
