Serpentine mess
11 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Dissatisfying episodes were not uncommon in difficult season four, and this mess, with its serpentine plot that grows sillier by the twist, is among the worst. Sturdy performances often propped up wobbly scripts, but the acting is part of the problem this time. Streetwise John Cassavetes is absurdly miscast as a bearded mountain man, and Drury stumbles over a feverish "mad" scene. Dub Taylor, Michael Burns and Quinn Redeker don't help either. Only Pilar Seurat, who is very touching as a soulful Indian maiden hopelessly smitten with The Virginian, provides any reward. Paul Henreid, former suave leading man in forties classics like "Casablanca" and "Now, Voyager," takes the blame for the direction.
