Cinderella on the Wagon Train
7 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Before she became a witch, Elizabeth Montgomery guest starred on Wagon Train as a schoolteacher traveling west on the same train as a royal prince, nephew of King Victor Emmanuel of Italy. Gustavo Rojo plays the prince who back in the old country has played the field and gotten more than a few husbands jealous. The King himself has sent him to San Francisco and his is the only wagon in the history of Wagon Trains to have a coat of arms on it.

Montgomery's father was an old friend of Ward Bond's and he's got a fatherly interest in seeing she's not seduced and abandoned. But this one is a real Cinderella story with Frank McGrath on Montgomery's team.

Seeing Charlie Wooster sticking up for the fairy tale ending was a real treat. His scenes with Ward Bond are especially good in this Wagon Train episode.
