Oomph girl has the water and rights to same
11 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Ann Sheridan plays the hard bitten title role in this Wagon Train episode, one of the best they had after John McIntire took over as wagonmaster.

Warner Brothers former Oomph Girl is sitting on top of a well that her late husband dug at his trading post. When there's a drought and the Wagon Train is dealing with a big drought it's the only water for miles around. And Sheridan with her Indian guards makes the passing settlers pay dear for it.

John McIntire is really up against it with Sheridan. She'd just as soon see the members of the Wagon Train die of thirst on the desert. Nothing moves this woman until she meets Mary Jayne Saunders and sees her in the same kind of plight she was in so very long ago.

Sheridan really dominates this episode in a role that you would normally see Barbara Stanwyck do. In the end Sheridan proves all too human to the relief of everyone.

And with some recent discussion about water and it's availability on the planet, this story has an all too frightening relevancy fot today.
