The Lost Expedition
25 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm still trying to figure out how John McIntire did not know of a little side trip that Denny Miller took scouting for an expedition into the Badlands that involved the son of a US Senator. Still when Colonel Alfred Ryder of the cavalry arrests Duke Shannon the whole Wagon Train comes to a halt as he commandeers his services to find out what became of that son and the rest of the expedition.

So Denny Miller takes Ryder and Senator Everett Sloane to find out what happened as they retrace the expedition's steps. Through many flashbacks from Miller the story unfolds and it ain't a pretty one. The son is an amiable but weak sort of individual, but he has a cousin in Skip Homeier who is a cruel and ruthless sort. As usual Homeier plays a man with a lot of issues.

The story as Miller unfolds it is not a pretty picture. He was lucky to be the only survivor of this expedition. Sloane finds out some hard truths about both Homeier and Dick Sargent who plays his son and whom he used as an extension of his own ambitions.

Ryder is antagonistic toward Miller from the beginning for no apparent reason. But he's working an agenda all his own that we find out at the very last minute. Talk about ruthless, that scene at the end with Sloane and Ryder is really something.
