Reference Rachel And The Stranger.
10 January 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Ralph Bellamy is the first billed in this Zane Grey Theater story where Bellamy has married the much younger Gloria Talbott and both have picked up Beverly Washburn whose folks were killed by Indians.

Said Indians are still around and a gallant young cavalry lieutenant offers to escort Bellamy and company for a bit. Talbott who is treated more like a live in maid than a wife gets more than taken with the young lieutenant played here by James Garner before Maverick, The Rockford Files and big screen stardom struck. You'll find none of the Garner comic cynicism on display here.

The best comparison I can make for this film is the classic RKO frontier drama Rachel And The Stranger with Loretta Young, William Holden, and Robert Mitchum in the same plot situation. But I have to say it was handled much better there.
