Linda Darnell and John Carradine
6 January 2011 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

Episode 20, "The Dora Gray Story" starred Linda Darnell as a wanderer heading to San Francisco with Doc Lockridge (John Carradine), who trades liquor for army rifles, selling the arms to marauding Indians. Flint McCullough (Robert Horton) discovers the hidden rifles and takes them both captive, but the cunning Doc is able to escape when Dora diverts Flint's attention. Flint decides to take her to the nearest army post, unaware that they swapped their rifles for Doc's whiskey, and are forced to imprison Flint to maintain their secret. Among a fine cast, Mike Connors plays the lieutenant of the army post, and Dan Blocker plays the sergeant, but it's John Carradine who gives the best performance, meeting a bad end from the Indians who never got their rifles. Carradine rejoined Ward Bond, director John Ford, and John Wayne (billed as Michael Morris) in the 1960 episode "The Colter Craven Story," while Linda Darnell returned as Dora Gray in "The Sacramento Story." This was the last pairing of Carradine and Darnell, formerly at 20th Century-Fox, where they appeared together in "Brigham Young," "Chad Hanna," "Blood and Sand," and "Fallen Angel."
