Did You Know?


In this episode the town of Sinclair, Wyoming is mentioned more than once, but it didn't exist until 1924. The "Laramie" series is set in the late 1800's & I'm a big fan of it, but I've also been to Sinclair more than once. The town was originally called Parco, by the Producers and Refiners Corporation & did not exist in the 1800's. The Sinclair oil refinery is there, which has been operated since the 1920's & folks over age 50 may remember seeing a green dinosaur on a white background @ Sinclair service stations -- I sure do! Easy to look up SInclair, Wyoming on the internet. See more »

The Sioux are on the warpath and Robert Fuller goes to Fort Laramie to help scout for the cavalry. That leaves John Smith over at Sherman station with one of the drivers who has been put in charge with repairing an old road. A rather strange crew of volunteers and draftees has been selected by James Brown the driver.

But things get even stranger as members of this work party start dying and not by natural causes.

This is one of the weirder Laramie episodes I've come across. Obviously someone is out to settle some scores, but with an impending Indian attack over the horizon?

Not a really good adaption to the west of Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians, no pun intended.
