Storyline

Julie Gage's father becomes ill with a fatal fever. The fever has everyone scared but the Major and Tobe Cannon take care of laying out her father. Julie is quite attractive and now alone so the Major with urging from others starts pairing Julie with single men to help her drive the wagon and take care of the maintenance on it. Julie is not interested in them for work or otherwise but when Tobe is convinced to help she accepts it. Tobe comes down with the fever and Julie with some help from the Major is left alone to tend to him for several days. When the women start taking issue with the arrangement, Julie has the Major "half marry" her to Tobe. When Tobe recovers, he is still not interested in the other "hal" of the marriage, yet.

Half a marriage
30 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The action is on romance with a dash of comedy as husband and wife Anne Jeffreys and Robert Sterling guest star in the Julie Gage Story. Anne is in the title role and she's a spirited lass making the trip west with her father who takes with a sudden fever and dies.

Since she's also beautiful there's no shortage of competition among the single men on the Wagon Train. She rejects both Jimmy Komack and Don Megowan, but Robert Sterling strikes her fancy though she makes a big fuss in any event.

People had some strange ideas back then. Granted that when Robert Sterling comes down with the same fever she has to nurse him which necessitates spending time with him. So she proposes to quiet the gossip that Ward Bond perform a marriage ceremony with only her taking the vows. She's bound to him, but Sterling's not bound to her.

Quite an arrangement, if they run the episode maybe it will catch on if someone like Britney Spears or Paris Hilton does it.

Can half a marriage work? You have to watch The Julie Gage Story to find out.
