Randy in love
15 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Randy Boone makes the most of his opportunity to play a romantic lead in this otherwise turgid drama that works itself up into a lather but leaves viewer cold. Boone and dewy pre-"Mod Squad" Peggy Lipton are surprisingly compatible lovebirds. Their tender moments buoy episode almost sunk by James Farentino's sulky method acting as her outlaw brother. As the respectable brother, Donnelly Rhodes looks pained, signaling either inner turmoil or uncomfortable Levis. But Rhodes would have his day in the western sun a few years later as the tinhorn who unwisely provokes Robert Redford in the opening scene of the classic "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."
