John Brown's body is not a-mouldering in the grave
12 December 2013 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

A coach carrying Jim and Arte is held up by hooded men carrying rifles, who then proceed to make off with a dress designer and an artist. When Jim tries to follow, a wall of flame bars his way. He had Arte had been investigating mysterious thefts of kerosene and copper from the government. Something strange seems to be happening in the mountains. A strange fiery glow can be seen for miles at night. To deepen the mystery, the man at its heart is claiming to be the long-dead abolitionist 'John Brown' ( John Doucette )...

Co-written by Robert Hamner - a contributor to 'Star Trek' and Irwin Allen's shows - this is another solid entry. The lovely Lynn Loring plays bad-girl 'Carma Vasquez'. Not good if you don't like snakes though - Jim is almost bitten by a rattler, and Arte comes close to stepping on it ( it was under a blanket ). Brown is in fact the nephew of the original, and plans on equipping a private army with a flame-throwing cannon to destroy the U.S. army and loot major cities. To protect them, he has developed a flame resistant suit. Nobody knew just how dangerous asbestos was in those days.
