1/6/61: "Sheba"
8 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

This is based on the biblical tale of David and Bathsheba. Lee Marvin is a rich cattleman with his eye on Whitney Blake, who was married to a cowboy who died in a stampede. He lent her money then had her convicted of stealing it. He testified on her behalf at a parole hearing so he feels she now "owes him". Tod and Buz befriend the lady, who is being treated as a crook by everybody who was there when she was convicted. They eventually arrange a little stampede of their own to force Marvin to confess to his sins.

This is the first of two appearances by Lee Marvin on the show and he's a domineering character who mistreats women in both of them. Whitney Blake is of course, the mother of Meredith Baxter but she deserves to be remembered as a beauty and good actress in her own right.
