In this Wagon Train episode Ward Bond is having a dilemma. He's behind schedule so he sends Robert Horton to see the owner of a Ponderosa like spread that is the size of Rhode Island according to its iron fisted owner Judith Anderson.
Anderson rules the place with an iron fist. Just imagine Mrs. Danvers running that kind of spread and you have the makings of trouble. This woman is not Victoria Barkley. She's one crazy old lady who after she sees Robert Horton manhandle some of her ranch hands, Anderson decides he'd be a fit husband for her granddaughter and determines to keep him there one way or another.
One of the more far out and weird Wagon Train stories.
