A MAN CALLED SHENANDOAH "Marlee" - 1966 - This is episode 26 of the 1965-66 western series, A MAN CALLED SHENANDOAH. The series starred Robert Horton. Horton is a man who suffered the loss of his memory after receiving a head wound. He is now searching the west for clues as to his identity.
Horton hits a small town looking for a woman who might know him from before his memory loss. He runs into the town Sheriff, John Ireland. Horton shows Ireland a photograph of himself and the woman he is seeking. Ireland shakes his head and says he has never seen the woman.
Horton says thanks and heads over to blacksmiths to have a loose horseshoe looked at. The blacksmith sees the photo and comments, "That is a picture of the Sheriff's wife, Nina Foch." Horton is somewhat confused by the news. Ireland had just said he never knew the woman.
Horton marches over to Ireland's house and knocks. Ireland answers the door and tells Horton to beat it. Horton explains that he means no harm, but just needs to ask Ireland's wife one question. He then tells Ireland his tale of memory loss etc.
Ireland agrees to a short talk between Horton and Foch. He tells Horton though that his wife is somewhat unbalanced in the head. She suffers from fits etc. Horton explains his quest for his identity to Foch but she does not recall him at all.
Horton then shows Foch the photograph of the two together. Foch smiles and says it was taken at an army fort years before. It was a fancy dress ball and everyone was in costumes. Hence the cape and sword Horton is wearing in the picture.
Foch says she might have a program from the event. It would have a list of her dance card in it. She digs through a box and comes out with a small bundle. They find a matching photo of Horton and Foch. On the back is written, "Me and D'Artagnan at the ball".
No joy here as Horton thanks Foch and Ireland for their time. He is off to continue his quest.
