The last of Morgan Starr
6 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Improbable but fairly absorbing drama interrupted series' depressing late-season skid. Star power of Leslie Nielsen, Julie Adams and future soap opera stud Eric Braeden, then known as Hans Gudegast, give show a boost, but stock heavy Rex Holman makes the most vivid impression as a psychotic killer in love with his Gatling gun. John Dehner, whose crusty Morgan Starr recurring role went over like a lead balloon with series' fans, shows a compassionate side here as he tries to dissuade Nielsen's bitter ex-lawman character from his assassination scheme before it's too late. It was already too late for Dehner. This was Morgan Starr's final appearance in "The Virginian." There would be big changes in the cast of regulars in season five.
