Gold Is Where You Find It
19 May 2006 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Dave vies with cunning old prospector (Hunnicutt) for lost treasure. Different kind of story, though ending left me unconvinced. Episode benefits from again showing Blassingame's all-too-human side. He doesn't do what conventions of the day dictated, so you don't know what to expect. Some good location photography, even if these blend poorly with cheap exteriors. Keith shines as usual, along with big mutt Brown. Best line-- "How much gold did it take for Dave to leave ya," sheriff's comment on finding Brown alone in the desert. Notable for Peckinpah again asserting the often neglected factor of weather as a real presence in Western life. Considering the expense involved for a small budget series, the brutal wind scene in the desert took some determination. Solid entry with a few surprises.
