Blondes Have More Fun when Held Hostage
27 December 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

On his way to El Paso, Reese (Neville Brand) stops by a bar "in the middle of nowhere", and is taken hostage. He is held at gunpoint (and later tied up) by three outlaws: gang leader Warren Kemmerling (as Jack Hanks), Mexican right hand man Fernando Lamas (as Paco Romero), and slightly psycho Jack Weston (as John Holden). The bar's proprietor is saucy Jeanette Nolan (as Martha Tuforth). She and young blonde "niece" Sheilah Wells (as Maryanne) are also hostages. Later, city councilman Tol Avery (as Millburn Willburn) and his older blonde wife Marian Moses (as Letty) become additional hostages.

The episode's bizarre storyline involves outlaw Lamas romancing the experienced "old blonde" (Ms. Moses) and the pliable "young blonde" (Ms. Wells). The hostage victims are so taken by their abductor's charms, they begin to fight over him - desiring to continue serving him as hostage, in Mexico. Halfway into the story, Joe (William Smith) arrives, posing as a traveling salesman (the "Stanley" character referred to in the episode title). Perhaps wisely, Peter Brown and Philip Carey do not appear during the hour.

It ends strangely.

Moses later appeared on "Falcon Crest"; both she and Lamas had sons (Lorenzo and William) who were regulars on the show.
