Flat Earthers
23 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This time it's Lorne Greene doing a bit of romancing in this Bonanza story with Ina Balin who is traveling with a bunch of Holy Rollers on a small wagon train to California. She's a doctor's widow who is also the brother-in-law of the head roller John Doucette. Doucette's wife Adrienne Marden is an even worse case of arrested development.

This particular Bonanza story went a way over the top as these religious folks become caricatures. Granted that a lot of these people are real backward, but objecting to Balin teaching the little ones that the earth is still flat was a bit much for the 19th century American west.

On the plus side are compelling portrayals by Doucette and Marden of religious fanaticism. These two would be leading the American Family Association today. But even they haven't repudiated the round earth.
