THE OUTCASTS "Pilot" 1968

THE OUTCASTS was a western series that ran for 26 episodes during 1968 and 1969. The series is set in 1870 in Texas and stars, Don Murray and Otis Young. Murray is a former Confederate Officer who now lives by his gun. Otis Young, a former slave and Union soldier is employed as a bounty hunter.

In this episode, the two men are forced by circumstances to work together to collar a man wanted on a bounty warrant. The man they seek, Warren Finnerty, is part of a wagon train. The trick here is that the wagon train is being run by the US Army. They are taking silver to the US mint in Washington.

Murray and Young are soon mixed up in an attempted hi-jacking of the silver by the Lt in charge of the wagon train. The man, Burr DeBenning is tired of army life and wants to move to Europe. The ill thought out plan comes unglued as Murray and Young stick their noses in.

Not what I would call a great episode, but, it does move along well enough. Otis Young is best known for his turn in the 1973 film, THE LAST DETAIL. Helping fill out the episode is scene stealer, Slim Pickens. Pickens plays a Sgt with the Army wagon train.

The look of the episode is quite sharp with one time Oscar nominated Harold Stine, handling the cinematography. The rousing theme is from Hugo Montenegro.
