Hellhole Prison
12 December 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Big Valley story has Nick and Heath being falsely arrested and sent to a labor camp without trial. In the process Heath sustains burns on his left leg. They work him in the prison, but get him no medical treatment.

David Sheiner plays a former sea captain who graduated from the Bligh sea school. And he delights in tormenting Peter Breck with Lee Majors's condition as precarious as it is.

Such talented folks as Walter Burke, Yaphett Kotto and Paul Picerni are in the cast. But Sheiner really steals this one.
