Child Saves Keenan Wynn
21 September 2008 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In this Wagon Train episode the guest star is Keenan Wynn playing the title role, a no good gambler and conman who has to beat it out of town real quick because Mexican bandit Carlos Romero has decided he's been cheating him.

Grabbing his two children from his sister he assumes the disguise of a preacher, getting a haircut and shaving off his mustache. He meets the Wagon Train on the trail riding a mule with the two kids and says that bandits robbed him. Ward Bond lets him join the wagon train.

But even before Robert Horton who saw him in town as a gambler rejoins the train, Bond gets real suspicious when he asks the 'preacher' to do a sermon.

Of course Romero and his men do catch up, but the children manage to save Wynn and the train. I won't say how, but it was one of the more ridiculous endings I've seen in any of the episodes which were usually of better quality than this.
