Actors made this routine script feel fresh.
18 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins as we see a covered wagon making its way across the rural part of land that will soon be known as Texas. Joel Todd (Ralph Bellamy) is a middle-aged man making his way from Tennessee to settle in the new land out west. Joel also has a much young wife, Caroline (Gloria Talbot), that has accompanied him on the trip. They also have picked up a small girl on their trip, when they came across her after her parents were killed.

Joel and Caroline had just been married and it was basically set up by her father that wanted her to marry a honest man. But the age difference is clearly a problem with the young Caroline. And obvious to the viewer.

During the trip the wagon is protected by a group of cavalry officers. One of the officers, Lt. Collins (James Garner), is a young man that sees the problem with the new married couple. Collins tries to move in on Caroline which stirs interest in Caroline and also Joel.

Even though this story has been performed many times throughout history, it seemed to be the actors that made this show seem fresh. Ralph Bellamy, the beautiful Gloria Talbot and James Garner made this production interesting with the way each gave their skill to the script. A show that was made better by the gifted talent.
