The tomboy orphan
1 February 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

8 years earlier Nancy Gates took in a newborn in when the parents died. Then her town was quite booming. But flash forward to the present in this Wagon Train episode and all that's left in her town is Irving Bacon, Chubby Johnson, and Harry Hines. There's also Evelyn Rudie the infant she took in who is now a tomboy orphan, but she thinks Gates is her real mom.

There's also Flint McCullough who makes it a point to stop in for the hospitality every trip he makes west. But now three unexpected visitors arrive Eleanor Audley from Philadelphia who says she's looking for her son's daughter whom she never met. Audley is accompanied by her lawyer Whit Bissell and her companion Amzie Strickland.

They arrive on foot because outlaw James Coburn has set them afoot after robbing their stagecoach and killing the driver and shotgun.

For Gates this is quite a challenge because she does think of Rudie as her daughter. How it all works out is for you to watch the episode for.

Only Robert Horton of the Wagon Train regulars appears in this story and it's a fine ensemble cast that's working with him.
