Institutional Man

Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
30 August 2017

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 hand there.

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.
