Father and son team up
18 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Noah Beery, Jr. is a man who disapproves of his son's profession and has voiced that on many occasion. But when a couple of thugs come over and give him a beating and force him to sign over an oil lease that he thought was worthless Rocky needs the services of his son.

Father and son work this one together. Some mighty unfriendly people keep shooing him away from the lot that Beery has leased. But he's not even their main target. There's a survivalist out there in the middle of the wilds played by John Anderson and he's the best one in this episode. He's the main target of the goons and I have to say that James Garner quite cleverly plays on his fear of nuclear holocaust to save his life.

In the end we also have Gretchen Corbett to explain why those leases are in such demand. You'll have to see the story to find out what this was all about.

Highlighting this one is Beery and Anderson. Anderson is one whacked out paranoid man.
