Not usually a subject for westerns
28 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Mental illness is not usually a subject for family westerns like Laramie. But it is here and guest star Eddie Albert who is never bad in anything gives a great performance as a man with some real psychological issues. He also is a person who once saved Robert Fuller's life.

Which is why Fuller leaves the Sherman station to keep an eye on Albert who has taken up with traveling Aimee Semple McPherson type evangelist Nanette Fabray and her traveling revival crusade.

This episode also offers a chance to see Hoagy Carmichael play the piano and sing. Carmichael left Laramie under some acrimonious circumstances. Had there been more episodes like this utilizing his talents maybe that might not have happened.

For some reason after a color opener the series switched to black and white and was that for the first two seasons. Then it went back to color.

In monotone still a good story.
