A mighty puritanical town
11 April 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

On the way by stagecoach to Tucson for a horse auction the Barkleys are stopped by a town ladies citizen's committee similar to the one that ran Claire Trevor out of town in Stagecoach. The good women want to rid themselves of saloon girl Susan Strasberg and in her best red dress she leaves on the coach with Barbara Stanwyck, Lee Majors, and Linda Evans.

From the frying pan to the fire is the route for Strasberg who in the next town runs into James Whitmore an old gunfighter, friend of Lee Majors and now town marshal. He runs a mighty puritanical town and he's the only one carrying weapons.

As more and more of Whitmore is revealed that he's a bully with a badge is abundantly clear. The towns people are scared to death of him. But Whitmore has bigger issues than that and it's Strasberg who brings it all to a head.

A plot very much borrowed from W. Somerset Maugham's Rain moved out west Whitmore's Marshal/Reverend Davidson is truly a terrifying figure. He's the main reason to see this Big Valley story.
