Ripoff of the Wagon Train episode "The Cliff Grundy Story"
This episode is almost a complete ripoff of "The Cliff Grundy Story," which was written by Aaron Spelling. See my review of "The Overland Trail" episode "The Baron Comes Back," another ripoff of a Wagon Train episode by this same "writer," B.L. James. Other than the ripoffs, I like "The Overland Trail" TV series. If you watch the Wagon Train episode and this episode back-to-back, you will be amazed and disgusted by the brazen ripoff of dialogue, plot, and even scenes and sequences. The character names are changed, of course, as are references that wouldn't make sense since Kelly and Flip don't run a wagon train. But the episode is such a blatant ripoff that it completely ruins my viewing pleasure. It's despicable that this hack B.L. James was able to commit what I consider to be fraud by taking money for these scripts that were ripped off from another series.
