Not so magnanimous
12 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Newlyweds Robert Ryan and Vera Miles join the Wagon Train in this opening episode of the eighth and last season of the trek west. They're old newlyweds, Ryan finally marries Miles and gives up the marshal's badge he's been wearing for 30 years.

Going to pick up three additional wagons for the Train, Robert Fuller runs into some old running buddies back from his days as a gunhand. They hired out in a range war and Ryan faced all of them. Fuller was shot in the back and Tommy Sands was left mute as a result of a Ryan's shotgun bent over his head. Fuller has it in for him as well as Sands and Andrew Prine and William Smith.

Despite this fine cast and impressive performances all around, especially Ryan, I doubt whether both Ryan or Fuller would have been as magnanimous as they both become in the end. For that reason I put this story as one of the lesser Wagon Train episodes.
