Yet Another Totally out of the Wagon Train Loop Episode
Scott (Denny) Miller rides into a small town and runs into trouble. He now must stand against that trouble or abandon the poor folk to fend for themselves, including the crippled Emmett Lawton (played by a 24-yr-old Dennis Hopper!) Now once again, the deal is that Hopper, Frances Reid as his mother and STanley Adams as the villain, NONE of them are on the wagon train! We are given way to the notion, I suppose that Miller has gone ahead as the scout to see where the train needs to go.
Actually quite a good episode, nice to see Hopper, Reid and especially Stanley Adams, he of one of the most popular Star Trek episodes, Trouble With Tribbles.
I've seen episodes of other westerns (Big Valley, anyone?) that just strain to be mysterious and fall flat on their faces.
Because this episode was so good and that was because of Hopper, this one worked, but again, there was no wagon train.
