A young Robert Redford is featured in this episode of The Virginian. In
it Redford plays a young man who has spent many years in prison since
he was 15. Redford is given a job at Shiloh ranch as a prototype of
Judge Garth's belief in a separate system of juvenile justice. Lee J.
Cobb feels Redford was too harshly punished.
Unfortunately since that is the only life he knows Redford has become
what Morgan Freeman described in Shawshank Redemption as an
institutional man. I've known a couple like that in my life. He can't
adjust and at a social event he gets into a nasty fight with another
Young Roberta Shore kind of crushes out on Redford, but he's got his
eyes on Patricia Blair who's a bit more adult. Shore gets to sing the
Stephen Foster song Some Folks Do which is a favorite of mine.
All you Robert Redford fans shouldn't miss this.
