Boys Town
3 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Art Linkletter and Nancy Davis guest star in this Wagon Train episode about a man who is trying to build a boys town in the new west some years before Father Flanagan got the idea. Linkletter brought the boys from Philadelphia, all orphans west to give them a new start in life. Davis is also from Philadelphia and she remembers that Linkletter was a derelict who was arrested for rolling drunken soldiers and refuses to believe he's changed.

The kids and Art have taken over an abandoned ghost town which is also in Sioux country, but the Sioux have given it up since a spring ran dry. It's why the white people left also and the chief doesn't want any whites even if they're kids.

This was Nancy Davis's farewell performance, she quite the acting profession even before her husband did. I guess she figured they had a destiny before he did.

It's all worked out nicely in the end. And the Wagon Train moved on with Art, Nancy, and the kids finding a mutual need for each other.
