I doubt two people who knew less of the facts of life ever got married
on television than Anne Helm and Michael Parks playing the title roles
in this episode of Wagon Train. But Helm's Scottish parents Liam
Redmond and Meg Wyllie have to get her married and soon because she's
coming of age. Plus the fact that she has bonded with the creatures
both domestic and wild the way Elly May Clampett did on the Beverly
With a little encouragement from Denny Miller they look toward farmer
Michael Parks who while he's got the mechanics of reproduction right
has not exactly been taught the social graces. In the middle of the
wedding he bolts to attend his sick cow Lulu.
Getting these two on the path to marital bliss won't be easy, but Parks
realizes that a woman who bonds with animals so well as Helm might be a
real asset as a farm wife.
This is one of the sillier episodes in the history of Wagon Train, but
there's a laugh or two be mined from it.
