Princess of a Lost Tribe

Wagon Train Fantasy
4 August 2019 | by shagy-137-282649See all my reviews

I disagree with those who hate this episode. Yes, it's preposterous and better suited presented as a dream Horton's character might have experienced, but I enjoyed it for several reasons. First, Linda Lawson was quite stunning at that time- somewhat stilted acting notwithstanding. The concept of lost civilizations has been a literary (and cinematic) staple for many years and how an intrusion by explorers of a western culture would affect it is fodder for thought. The plot development strains credulity, but it held my interest nevertheless. Robert Horton always does fine work in this series and he does exerts yeoman efforts here to keep it watchable. There have been similar episodes in other series such as Bonanza and The Virginian involving events which included ambiguous dream/fantasy experiences. I'd not seen this episode before although I used to watch Wagon Train way back during its original run. I thought this episode was well worth an hour of my time!
