Episode ripoff of Wagon Train's "The Riley Gratton Story"
1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is almost a complete ripoff of "The Riley Gratton Story" episode of Wagon Train, written by William Fay from a story by Dwight Newton. The "writer" of "The Baron Comes Back," if you can call this fraud B.L. James a writer, follows the plot incident-by-incident, with almost exact dialogue, too. The Wagon Train episode aired in 1957. B.L. James, also wrote "Sour Annie," which was a ripoff of the Wagon Train episode "The Cliff Grundy Story," which was written by Aaron Spelling. To me, this is out-and-out theft. The "writer" is paid for original work and rips off an episode of another series almost verbatim, changing only a few things and some things necessary because it's a different show. What a colossal fraud this so-called writer B.L. James is. James should have been sued for plagiarism. Overall, I like "The Overland Trail," but this fraud disgusts me. It's difficult for new writers to break into the industry, and crooks like this practically steal money and still were able to get work.
