old west version of Love Story
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this episode when it was first aired (yes, I'm that old) and hoped that it would be repeated in the summer. Back then a rerun was a treat, not the torture we endure today. The story was simple but one of those airings that fall into place with writers, directors, and actors. The opening scene is the Virginian on a hill overlooking what was to be his home with a wife. The was a duet with Randy Boone & Roberta Shore as they often sang for a few years. The bride was terminally ill but her sister who knew the truth was determined to give her one last spring. I am personally hoping that the whole Virginian series is available on DVD soon.
