This episode marked the first time I had seen "Rawhide" in almost 50 years. Ironically, this was the final episode in the eight-year run of the series. Thus, it was kind of fun to see a very young Clint Eastwood and the star of the show, Eric Fleming, who I hadn't seen in years. That's because the man died in 1966 drowning while filming not long after this Rawhide episode.
Anyway, this episode was all about Lola Albright, the sex siren from the "Peter Gunn" TV series. Here, she guested as "Lottie," a disturbed
as we find out - woman who isn't as sweet as she looks.
The episode was very stagy and melodramatic but also was fantastically filmed with many scenes a film-noir director would be envious. With that, and Albright's looks, there was a lot to ogle.....but don't expect an action-packed western story.
