Montezuma IX
2 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the strangest Wagon Train episodes ever done. Not that it's good, just very strange.

Robert Horton gets an assignment to take three men and guide them into a rugged mountain wilderness. Ed Mallory is looking for his father who disappeared into the wilderness a few years back. Chet Stratton is an archaeologist who is checking on rumors of some lost Aztecs who survived and Frank Jenks is just looking for a little riches and adventure. During the night Horton is visited by Aztec princess Linda Lawson who guides them all into the valley where a new Tenochitlan has been founded.

Presided over by Lawson's father Raymond Massey as Montezuma IX. The Aztecs survived and headed north and created this sanctuary in the Rockies where the good and bad of their culture has survived.

On so many levels is this one of the dumbest Wagon Train episodes ever filmed. But God bless him Raymond Massey kept a straight face throughout mouthing some truly puerile dialog.

Only for die-hard fans.
