Carrying Cholera
3 January 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In one of her last roles on either the big screen or the small Esther Williams doesn't go near any water. Instead she takes responsibility for the care of some cholera victims who were left alive after Apaches massacred an army patrol of which this wagon was part. But also on that wagon is a killer they were taking to trial who took refuge in that wagon rising cholera over the hangman. The Apaches know the look of the disease and didn't get near the wagon.

Williams is a compassionate soul, but she's also driving wagonmaster Larry Pennell to distraction and alienating the other members of the train.

Of course it all works out right in the end. She might even forget that man she was going west to marry because Pennell is starting to look good to her.

You have to see how they identify the killer, an interesting trick.
