Prairie Probation

Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
29 November 2008

A Dying Orville Sherman rather dramatically rides up to the Wagon Train and asks for Flint McCullough. He's got tuberculosis and $342.00 to show for his life and he gives it to Robert Horton. And one other thing, a teenage son in the next town where they've settled. Then poor Sherman dies.

What he didn't tell Horton was that his son was in jail. Tommy Sands plays the son and the title role in The Larry Hannify Story. Horton and his father were in the Civil War together which is why Sherman entrusted Horton with Sands. But there's an armed robbery charge pending.

Sands gets a final break from the law in an unusual prairie probation arrangement, he's placed in Horton's custody on the promise he leave the territory forever. Sands of course is protesting his innocence all along. It's just prejudice from a northern town to a southern family.

Tommy Sands got a chance to sing a Civil War ballad Aura Lee which was an added treat. And does good in the part of a juvenile delinquent in the old west.

The episode also featured an appearance of Dodger outfielder Wally Moon who had just come off a career season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He plays a sheriff and he has a few lines towards the end of the episode. As an actor he was a great ballplayer.

Whether Tommy Sands is a good or a bad kid you have to watch the Larry Hannify Story to find out.
