Butler Family Values
9 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One day at the Ponderosa David Canary gets a letter from old flame Mary Frann asking for his help for her and her husband Lawrence Casey. Seems like they and others are being squeezed off their land by the local Ben Cartwright, Calvin Butler and his son who are played by Will Geer and Robert Pine. Lorne Greene knew Geer back in the day and has trouble believing he's gone bad.

Gone bad he has terrorizing new homesteaders. Candy and Little Joe arrive and find a man murdered and his wife and child burned up in an arson fire at their homestead. They also find Casey wounded and on the run.

The decision is made to take him back to town and take over the jail until the US Marshal and the circuit judge get there. Still this town is called Butlerville for a reason. Shades of Rio Bravo.

Bonanza fans should be pleased.
