Harry Morgan and Josephine Hutchinson
5 March 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"All's War in Love and Fairs" has the family bus breaking down in a desert locale near the reservation of the Papago Indians, who need the proceeds from their local fair to build a new school. Previously seen in "The Sound of Money," Harry Morgan, as the alleged mechanic, conducts a more amiable con, assisted by wife Josephine Hutchinson, familiar with Universal buffs for "The Crime of Doctor Hallet" and "Son of Frankenstein." Reuben Kincaid in war paint is a sight to see, and one would think that "Morning Rider on the Road" (B-side of "I'll Meet You Halfway") would be the perfect song to match the subject matter, but perhaps because it mentions 'the blue Montana skies,' it failed to qualify. What we hear is "Come On Love," composed by Terry Cashman and T. P. West, the first track taken from the Mar 1973 release of seventh LP CROSSWORD PUZZLE, the last album to feature on the Billboard album charts, peaking at 167 (the only one except Christmas CARD without any singles).
