The wagon train stops outside the Jamison ranch which is massive. Flint with Wooster visiting the Will Jamison grave site finds a man stabbed with a note saying "Deliver to Beauty Jamison" who is the surviving daughter of Jamison. Flint takes the body to the Jamison ranch and learns the dead man was a gunfighter and foreman for Beauty. She offers Flint the job but he turns her down while running into an old friend from the East Steve Marshall who lost a hand in the war. Beauty is trying to uphold the control her father had but she is too immature to understand how to do it. Steve is in love with her and is trying to work out the problems but Beauty's ego gets in the way. Flint suggests the ranchers form a Cattlemen's Association which they do but Beauty's new foreman, Jud Bascombe, wants to use force against them. His actions force the ranchers into action and his $20 toll per wagon pushes Flint to confront Jub and Beauty. Flint takes on Jud and Steve has to handle Beauty who has lost... Written by Anonymous

You'd Better Cast A Beauty
26 October 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When you have a title role with the name Beauty Jamison assigned to it, you'd better cast a beauty. So the producers at Wagon Train got the very beautiful Virginia Mayo for the part.

Mayo owns a Ponderosa type spread that she inherited from her tough dad who built the outfit. The Wagon Train had a right of way passage every year that Ward Bond negotiated. When scout Robert Horton rides on ahead this year, he gets himself in the middle of a range war Mayo's having with all the other ranchers around. Including Russell Johnson who is playing a soft spoken professorial like role as a ranch owner who once had a thing for Mayo. That is before the Civil War and he lost an arm.

Mayo is not Victoria Barkley as Jamison. She's trying to do things as she expected dear old dad would want and it's creating all kinds of problems and the Wagon Train could become a collateral casualty.

With the accent on Horton carrying this episode, The Beauty Jamison Story works very nicely as the pioneers continue west.
