Drop the gun or I'll roll her!
23 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's fun to see these old episodes and how much they managed to squeeze into an hour show. The insides of those wagons are as roomy as a hotel suite. Warren Stevens plays a total loser whose greed for gold finally sinks him. Ruta Lee and Virginia Grey are the actresses in this story and don't really look like trail riders, and that's OK. I'd gladly be the prospector living alone in the wilderness if I could find a total babe (Virginia Grey) lying outside my cabin and needing saved. Special thanks to Wooster for having appropriate medication handy in the middle of nowhere. Overall a good episode of a somewhat typical story on Wagon Train
