The Miss Mary Lee McIntosh Story

It will be MS. for their female descendants
20 February 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Jack Warden and Bethel Leslie jointly guest star in this Wagon Train episode and they have a relationship based on what Charlie Allnut and Rose Sayer had in the African Queen.

Leslie proudly bears the name of Miss Mary Lee McIntosh although I suspect that her descendants would have fought proudly for the right to be called Ms. She's a schoolteacher going west to settle on land left by her father where she will start a school.

Warden is a foxy guy who is a photographer and his work gains him entry into the camps of Indians some of them hostile because they like his work. Good thing he wasn't working in the Middle East.

Leslie is determined not to pay the exorbitant fee of $40.00 to officially travel with the Chris Hale Wagon Train. But when she loses her wagon, she's forced to accept Warden's hospitality.

The two develop some great rapport in their joint scenes. The climax involving Warden saving the Wagon Train from Indian attack is also one for the books.
