Brought tears to my eyes
29 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always like the character of Charlie Wooster. Loyal friend despite the brunt of constant jokes, a man who seems to find good in most people. If you are one who has watched all of Wagon Train you also are aware he was somewhat of a fearless war hero during the Civil War. In The Nellie Jefferson Story his undying and loving appreciation of a woman not worthy of the high esteem Wooster holds for her is played brilliantly by the great Janis Page. We find in this episode that Charlie is a wonderful cook when he so desires. Frank McGrath and Miss Paige are both excellent. She finally picks up on Charlie's special feelings for her but isn't totally clear until a great scene involving a scrapbook that leads to the denouement. A first class episode of Wagon Train for me. One of my favorites.I believe that McGrath was in more Wagon Train episodes than any other actor with Terry Wilson right behind. Those two seem to hold the show together.
