Charleston charmer
23 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Debra Paget plays the title role in this Wagon Train episode and channels a bit of Vivien Leigh, a bit of Bette Davis in playing a very willful southern belle traveling on Ward Bond's Wagon Train. Paget's from an old Charleston family that lost it all and she's traveling west with her father Raymond Greenleaf who is still in the ante-bellum south in his mind plus a former family house slave Sam McDaniel.

Along comes Robert Lowery who is very much like that other Charleston charmer Rhett Butler. Back in the day he fought several duels, now he sat out the war and got rich dealing with both sides. He takes one look at Paget and he's back in Charleston.

To put it short, he's not the marrying kind and she's a flirt. She starts turning on the machine for young Sicilian immigrant Nick Adams and let's say it could have ended worse.

Lowery has history with Bond and Bond is just trying to both stay clear of other people's romances and yet avoid a tragedy that is brewing rapidly.

Paget, Lowery, and Adams all deserve kudos for their performances.
