Comanchero Princess
16 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Horton's gallantry is put to the test in many ways in this Wagon Train episode. First off spotting Anna Maria Alberghetti on the trail with a sprained ankle, he stops to help. He's taken prisoner by the Comancheros.

But there's a palace coup in the ranks. Alberghetti's father is overthrown and killed by Carlos Romero who ought to kill her, but he sadly thinks with his male member when she's around. So do a lot of people when she's around. Now she helps Flint McCullough escape.

What Alberghetti wants is safe passage on the Wagon Train. Ward Bond a bit older and wiser ain't so sure. One thing is sure Flint McCullough ain't the marrying kind and so informs the Comanchero princess.

Playing this part Alberghetti reminded a lot of Rita Moreno playing Anita in West Side Story. It's obvious to the viewer that this woman just goes on her whims.

Might have been nice to have Anna Maria Alberghetti sing a song just like Ann Blyth did the previous season. Would have added something to the story.
