The Cartwrights are broke
18 July 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Bonanza story has all the regulars going to a one horse town to sell some hides to the town's leading citizen who Lorne Greene did business with some years back. When they get there however all kinds of bad luck happens to the Hoss, Little Joe, and Candy.

This is all no accident, the worst is that it's all around town that the Cartwrights are broke. A rumor started by Paul Richards the guy who was going to buy the hidea.

That's the biggest problem with the story. Even in this one horse town I think if the Ponderosa went belly up there might have been news about that from other than Richards's gossip mongering. Makes it all a tad unreal.

Still Richards delivers a nice performance and Slim Pickens has a fine part as a hick sheriff who turns out to be a lot smarter than everyone thought.
