    RAWHIDE SEASON 5

    Episode #14
    “Incident of the Buryin’ Man”
    written by Jack Turley
    directed by Thomas Carr
    guests: King Donovan, Constance Ford, Richard Devon

    It is a light entry about two fancy antagonistic crooks paired with an Indian threat backdrop. It starts out as a solo adventure in which Favor and Yates come to the rescue of a weird counterfeiter/printer posing as an undertaker whose hearse is out of order. Later on, the outfit plays cards, cheats and wins his phony money. When the undertaker tries to run away from his mortal enemy and his female partner posing as a school teacher, music editor Gene Feldman injects the hectic CBS cue “Jailbreak” by Jerry Goldsmith.

    It's been mostly work, preparing to move house, and Magnum P.I. for me the past two weeks, but I did manage to sneak a couple of other shows in this weekend.

    Magnum P.I.
    1.6 "Skin Deep"
    1.7 "Never Again...Never Again"
    1.8 "The Ugliest Dog in Hawaii"
    1.9 "Missing in Action"
    (detailed reviews of the above episodes in the dedicated thread)

    Rawhide - 1.1 "Incident at Alabaster Plain"
    Randall, Bob Gu and John Hopper have already gone into detail about this superb early episode in the TV Westerns thread. Everything about this one is top-class down the line: a strong story, a beautiful location, good action and an excellent supporting cast - including Martin Balsam, Joe de Santos, Troy Donahue, Suzanne Lloyd and Peter Mark Richman, who is terrific as an unrepetantly nasty bad guy.

    The Magician
    1.1 "The Manhunters"
    The first proper episode of this series is a good one, as Tony (Bill Bixby) steps in to break up a gambling racket that has targeted his friend Max Pomeroy (Keene Curtis) for assassination. Some very impressive stunts for a TV show, including a pretty crazy one on a bridge and an exciting finale with Tony clinging to the top of a runaway ambulance. Tony's not much of a fighter, but he pulls a super cool trick here where he whips two goons back-to-back, handcuffs them and then hogties them on the floor. Marlyn Mason is nicely brittle as a lush socialite who Tony helps get out from under the thumb of the mafia.

    The Outer Limits - Season 1 Remastered Bluray
    Production And Decay Of Strange Particles (1.30) George MacReady, Signe Hasso, Leonard Nimoy, Joseph Ruskin. Talky episode. Craig Bean says the commentary helps appreciate this one. Maybe so, I need to give it a listen.
    The Chameleon (1.31) Robert Duvall, Howard Caine, Douglas Henderson. Excellent episode concerning a jaded thrill seeker who finds the challlenge he is missing in his life.
    The Form Of Things Unknown (1.32) Menage-a-trois, blackmail, backstabbing, time tilting and blindness all in a spooky old house. What an interesting episode to end the first season with.
    I am looking forward to the arrival of season 2.

    Star Trek - Season 3 Remastered Bluray
    Spectre of The Gun (3.6) Charles Maxwell, Rex Holman, Bill Zuckert. Another visit to an important memory for Captain Kirk. The Clanton's against the Earp's as a test. Sure seems we humans get tested by a large variety of aliens :D.
    Day Of The Dove (3.7) Michael Ansara, Susan Howard. Another alien test, this time about racial predjudice creating violent physical reprisals. I have enjoyed this one since it first aired (may have had something to do with Susan Howard). The look on Scotty's face when he spies the Claymore is priceless.
    For The World I Hollow, and I Have Touched The Sky (3.8) Kate Woodville, Jon Lormer. Another "evil" malfunctioning computer that must be "corrected" by our heroes. At least "Bones" gets the love story this episode. Seems that the 4 men all share that honor this season, some more than once (Spock).

    Perry Mason - Season 5
    The Case Of The Renegade Refugee (5.13) Frank Overton, Dick Foran, Paul Lambert, John Sutton. Nazi's and a tranquil monastic retreat are the setting for this mystery.
    The Case Of The Unwelcom Bride (5.14) DeForest Kelley, Torin Thatcher, Diana Millay, Gerald Mohr, Alan Hale, Jr. Wayward sons, gambling debts, neighborhood thefts and murder.
    The Case Of The Roving River (5.15) Sarah Marshall, Paul Fix, Philip Ober, Bruce Bennett, Harry Carey, Jr., J. Pat O'Malley. Land issues concerning where a river has changed boundaries and an absent stepfather.
    This places me at the halfway point of this series. I cannot believe how much like comfort food an episode of Perry Mason is. The mysteries are well plotted and are still just as entertaining during season 5 as they were in season 1.

    Mission:Impossible - Season 2
    A Game of Chess (2.17) Don Francks, Curt Lowens. Computer chess and stealing gold, perfect for our team.
    The Emerald (2.18) William Smithers, Michael Strong. Arms dealing, Soviet bloc again, emeralds, high stakes poker all on the Love Boat.
    The Condemned (2.19) Marianna Hill, Peter Donat, Kevin Hagen, Will Kuluva. An off the book "mission" as Jim is helpin an old friend who is on death row. Wrongly accused mind you. Interesting thing, they faked a jail break by concealing the inmate.
    The Counterfeiter (2.20) Edmond O'Brien, Frank Campanella, Roy Engel, Jon Lormer. No more Soviet bloc, now organized crime is making counterfeit pills. The plan is to create a medical need by the main counterfeiter so he can expose himself (so to speak).
    The Town (2.21) Will Geer, Eddie Ryder, William O'Connell. Small town characteristics play into this unusual story. Jim is out for R&R with Rollin. His car is having issues so he pulls into a local gas station and witnesses a drill for an execution. He is captured and given medication to fake a stroke. Since Jim didn't arrive, Rollin goes looking for him and when he finds Jim, he sets another off book mission in motion. Creatively different and the best episode I viewed so far this season.
    The Killing (2.22) Gerald S. O'Loughlin, Roy Jenson. Another twist on the supernatural using studio effects to create a "dead" character as the guest villain is superstitous. Neat effect, the dissolving mask once the henchman is shot.

    RAWHIDE SEASON 5

    Episode #15
    “Incident of the Trail’s End”
    written by Ed Adamson
    directed by Don McDougall
    guests: Harold J. Stone, George Brenlin

    It’s a story focused on an aging man named Maxton with a terminal eye problem and former great trail boss accepting a simple job of drover to help his friend Gil Favor but one of the drover bears an old grudge against him. The men on the outfit resent Maxton. This assignement is the swan song of Maxton. Actor Clint Eastwood sings “Beyond the Sun, Over the Mountain” at the saloon at the sound of a piano during Act 1.

    On the unaired pilot of RAWHIDE the main theme was Russ Garcia's instrumental version of "Beyond The Sun". In the pilot Robert Carricart played the cook, Paul Brinegar still being involved with WYATT EARP. The pilot was "Incident at Barker Springs" and was broadcast as S1E7 with Paul Brinegar re-doing the cook's scenes, but in some of the group camp scenes you can still see Carricart.

    That crew intro Mr. Favor does in "Incident at Alabaster Plain" was in the original pilot, with Carricart sitting with Mushy.

    Clint Eastwood sings "Beyond the Sun" in, S4E21, "The Pitchwagon" too. Note the screams..Take that Ricky Nelson.



    Russ Garcia sped up "Beyond The Sun" and turned it into the theme for LAREDO.

    RAWHIDE SEASON 5

    Episode #16
    “Incident at Spider Rock”
    written by Al C. Ward
    directed by Thomas Carr
    guests: Susan Oliver, Lon Chaney, James Best, William Phipps

    It’s an intimate story centered around the case of a troubled rich and educated young woman running away from her strict family, working as a singing saloon girl, saved from punishment/torture by Yates and Wishbone and stirring anarchy inside the outfit of Gil Favor because some drovers (Yates, Cain, Rock) are attracted by her persona. Drover Willie Cain is jealous and has a blackmailing plan to get some money from the heiress, with the help of his pal Joe. The episode starts out as an errand for Yates and Wishbone to buy supplies into a crooked town of vicious swindlers, accompanied by drovers.

    Episode #17
    “Incident of the Mountain Man”
    written by Richard Fielder
    directed by Don McDougall
    guests: Robert Middleton, Robert Wilke, Patricia Crowley

    It’s a lynching story in which Yates, Quince and Scarlet interrumpt the hanging of a trapper named Josh Green—falsely accused of killing the son of a trail boss—by other drovers. Yates offers a legal trial at the next town (Bridger’s Ford) but Gil Favor doesn’t like the idea of keeping a prisoner in his cattle drive. Unfortunately, the prisoner escapes with his daughter from Favors and Yates goes after him. Things turn bad when a band of Indians pop-up to stop Yates and his prisoners.

    Episode #18
    “Incident At Crooked Hat”
    written by Joseph Petracca
    directed by Don McDougall
    guests: James Gregory, Arch Johnson, Jeanne Cooper, Jan Merlin


    “Take a good look, Talbot. One part iron, six parts lead, one part reputation.”
    —Gil Favor about the gun of gunfighter Jack Jennings.


    It’s a tired professional gunfighter trying to get a second chance as a cow hand for Gil Favor under the new name of Owen Spencer. But fate brings him back by the collar when he guns down a young arrogant man in a state of self-defense. Bad news, his big brother Sam Talbot is looking for a revenge. In the process, Gil Favor gets a bullet in his arm. Crooked Hat is the name of the saloon, by the way. Actor Arch Johnson returns from two episodes: “Incident on the Road Back” (with again Jeanne Cooper) and “Incident of the Reluctant Bridegroom”. For the anecdote, Johnson appears in a season 3 episode of The Twilight Zone entitled “Showdown with Rance McGrew” in which he plays Jess James teaching a television actor about the real West.

    Episode #19
    “Incident of Judgment Day”
    written by ‘story consultant’ Paul King and Richard Landau
    story by Richard Landau
    directed by Thomas Carr
    guests: John Dehner, Claude Rains, Gail Kobe, John Kellogg


    “I said I would play a part. A clown. The buffoon. A play-actor on a stage of sand. That’s how it has to be.”
    —Judge Langford about his social status.


    It's a solo Yates adventure. At night and for his birthday, at the camp, Wishbone makes a cake to Yates when two riders stop by and take Yates into custody. Arriving at dawn in a ghost town, the three men step into an empty and destroyed house to execute Yates when an old drunk judge makes his dramatic entrance. The trial of confederate private Yates is about to begin featuring many witnesses…

    The basic plot of the kangaroo court will be recycled in a 1968 episode of The Wild Wild West entitled “The Night of the Underground Terror” (season 3). Actor John Dehner returns from the spooky “Incident of The Four Horsemen”. Stock music culled from Leonard Rosenman’s haunting “And When the Sky Was Opened” from The Twilight Zone.

    Recommended!

    RAWHIDE SEASON 5

    Episode #20
    “Incident of the Gallows Tree”
    written by Albert Aley
    story by William L. Stuart
    directed by Christian Nyby
    guests: Beverly Garland, Gregory Walcott, Judson Pratt, Edward Faulkner

    It’s a whodunit in which Jim Quince is involved in a murder case after getting drunk in a livery stable next to the saloon. The opening scene in which Jim Quince gets out of the livery stable while singing his favorite tune (“Skip to my Lou, my darling”) is well-shot, by the way. This is the second episode after the season 3 “Incident of the Running Iron” that highlights Quince as a so-called murderer. Favor and Yates investigate to save their friend. During the course of this drama, a war is avoided between Favor’s outfit and the townspeople. The coward sheriff quits his job to join the lynch mob so Favor is promoted to sheriff to protect the office as in Rio Bravo. The name of the saloon (pair-a-dice) is a funny play on word for ‘paradise’. As in the previous entry “Incident of Judgment Day”, another member of the outfit is sentenced to hanging. Actress Beverly Garland returns from “Incident at Sugar Creek” and still as a saloon lady. Christian Nyby’s film-making is inspired.

    Episode #21
    “Incident of the Married Widow”
    written by ‘story editor’ Paul King
    story by Charles Gray and Kathleen Freeman
    directed by Thomas Carr
    guests: Patricia Barry, Dabbs Greer, Don Haggerty, Sheila Bromley, Roy Engel, Robert B. Williams


    “Now remember, don’t any of you let her sweet-talk you because between a woman’s yes and woman’ no,
    there isn’t even room for a pin to go.”
    —Wishbone


    It’s a light Gil Favor episode that starts out as a solo adventure for three men (Yates, Wishbone, Mushy) on an errand to buy some supplies in the next town and then stop at a cozy upper-class saloon called The Silver Slipper—actually a ‘salon’—to discover a framed picture of Gil Favor, portrayed as the late Captain Favor from the Confederate army. The boys resume to the camp to announce the news to their trail boss who is susprised and decide to take care of this scam: phony widow Miss Abigail, owner of the salon! For the anecdote, actor Clint Eastwood plays the piano at the salon while singing “The sun is peeking out, over the mountain”. As in the season 3 “Incident of the Night on the Town”, Gil Favor acts like a society man and dances with a distinguished lady as well as Rowdy Yates. Favor eventually plans a cunning way to get out of this non-sense…

    RAWHIDE SEASON 5

    Episode #22
    “Incident of the Pale Rider”
    written by Dean Reisner
    directed by Christian Nyby
    music composed and conducted by Nathan Scott
    guests: Albert Salmi, Fred Wayne, Russell Thorson

    Arriving in a ghost town, Hey Soos and Calhoun stop their supplies wagon to get a load while Rowdy Yates goes to the Wells Fargo office to obtain the expenses money ($200). Waiting for his money, Yates offers a job to a singing drunk pianist named John Day who later threatens him with his handgun to steal his money. Calhoun steps into the Wells Fargo office, John Day turns up and shoots him while Yates guns Day down dead. Returning to the camp, Yates notices the new drover named Rivers who is the lookalike of the late John Day and sings the same tune (“As I walked out in the streets of Laredo”)! A series of trouble starts from here…

    As in the premature burial-oriented “Incident of the Four Horsemen”, find a frankly macaber episode in the line of Thriller that toys with the question of the identity and the theme of the doppelgänger: the evil twin. The performance of Albert Salmi as the black-leathered revengist is noteworthy. Composer Nathan Scott used to work on The Twilight Zone.

    Recommended for the friends of the unusual.

    Episode #23
    “Incident of the Comanchero”
    written by Al C. Ward
    directed by Thomas Carr
    guests: Robert Loggia, Virginia Gregg, Christopher Dark, Than Wyenn, Joseph Perry, Nina Shipman

    It's both an injured Mexican bandit (see “Incident of Decision”) and a nun episode (see “Incident at Poco Tiempo”).
    It also features a former gambler turned drover. Mr. Favor is absent so Yates leads the outfit.
    The story is static due to the camp setting and melodramatic and it plays like a long fragmented confession
    coupled with the threat of a bandits raid to conclude.

    For me, Rawhide's Incident of the Comanchero represents one of Robert Loggia's finest performances that I have seen. When I saw it for the first time in about 30 years in the early '90s, it knocked my socks off. I think he's that good in this one. To a great degree because he had a fine script and a chance to shine. Enjoying your reviews and synopsis'es for the great fifth season, John!

    Rawhide gains its strength from its guests and the dangers that the outfit encounter.
    Besides, once you get into the season, you’re addicted and you can't stop watching.

    The Flintstones fourth-season episode "Dino Disappears," OAD Oct. 10, 1963 on ABC (from WB/H-B Diamond Collection condensed all-in-one of that 1960-66 ABC cartoon comedy); I received my copy of that release earlier, and there are two big things that go on the credit side of it:

    -- It has English, French and Spanish subtitles;

    -- It also has chapter stops; I had the original first-season release a long time ago, and every episode was a sustaining 25-min. block; if you tried to skip the titles, you ended the episode.

    All-in-all, I think this Flintstones release will be another release that I will enjoy immensely.

    Episode #24
    “Incident of the Clown”
    written by Charles Larson
    directed by Don McDougall
    guests: Eddie Bracken, Ted de Corsia, Harry Lauter, Richard Hale

    It’s a light former clown turned philologist willing to study Comanche language facing the hostility of Gil Favor. But the threat of the Comanches is dead real during the journey and three protagonists (Favor, Wishbone, Stevens) fail to be killed. The introduction to clumsy clown Morris G. Stevens who is unable to master his horse reminds a season 3 episode in which a lawyer encounters the same issue: “Incident of the Night on the Town”. The mythology of circus was strong in the XIX th century.
