Rural poor episode
21 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Former child superstar Patty Duke loses her sparkle in lackluster episode. Duke's subdued performance as Sue Ann leaks all the spunk from her upwardly mobile character, resulting in one of the most joyless saloon girls in TV western history. Feeble script, weakened most by its writers' patronizing assumptions about the lives the rural poor lead, is only kept breathing by the assured acting of Doug McClure, Clu Gulager and young Tim McIntire as a sneaky bad guy. Tightly wrapped actor Paul Carr, who always looked like he'd just bit a lemon, plays the dim-witted suitor Sue Ann is understandably leery of. Viewers are left to wonder how story's resolution leaves her any better off than she was at the start.
