RIP, Malachi Throne, one of the few actors to match and even give Richard Long's Jarrod pause to contemplate unanticipated wisdom in the opening train sequence in the series pilot, "Palms of Glory". Mr. Throne's Crown - emissary of and advance legal hit man on the railroad's mercenary side - was soooooo memorable one wished for his return which he did over more than a handful of eps (tho not as the originally impressive character he portrayed above).



In Appreciation, we're gonna watch that "Palms" sequence straight away as a homage to Mr. Throne's savvy skill and memorable impact.

Sadly gone, but the illustrious light of his work shall ne'er be forgotten ...

4. Young Marauders.





The delicious, ever-delectable Miss Evans didn’t have as much opportunity to shine during Season One as her more accomplished actoral compadres, yet when called upon she did deliver more than the sumptuous window-dressing she so effortlessly excelled at. This ep wasn’t one of ‘em, tho but it provided some interesting conflicts when Audra is rescued by a mysterious man (Sean Garrison) who turns out to be ramroding a deadly gang of mustang rustlers in the Valley.

The core sequence is when he’s invited to the Barkley ranch and her suspicious big-brothers (especially wonderfully hot-headed Nick) accost the guy in front of their sister’s horrified gaze.



Natch, it doesn’t end well and she’s left to nurse her heart’s wounds which ( being a Barkley) she takes a brave ride alone out into the country - to boldly take on whatever awaits whenever it comes



with spirit unbowed and unbroken ... wink


"Young Marauders" is noteworthy as the only first season episode of "The Big Valley" NOT scored by George Duning, but ironically enough, by his onetime orchestrator at Columbia (and former Four Star executive music director) Herschel Burke Gilbert (his last score until "Sam Whiskey") who had just left C.B.S. as their Executive Music Director (due to corporate meddling), though it's not known if this was an original score or was rerecorded library music he composed for Four Star.

Jn Burlingame says in his book "Television's Greatest Hits" that Duning composed the main title, a library for tracking purposes, and three episodes, yet the majority of the season was scored by him. Which episodes contain actual Duning scores?

Accept No Reel Battlin' Barkleys Substitutes Department:

Evidently that big screen mo'om pitcher version is pretty much kaput. The announced director was indicted for fraud re a coupla films he'd been involved with before-hand and this supposedly didn't sit overly well with the investors of the new flick.

Tho first twas Susan Sarandon proposed for then the equally admired Jessica Lange actually inked to essay a contemporary version of The Barkley matriarch, we can't say we're toooooooo disappointed.



To borrow from another long-lasting franchise: There Can Be Only ONE. wink

cool cool

Put me in the last fifteen minutes of a picture and I don't care what happened before.

The not caring what happened before certainly applied to the rage-inducing "happy ending" to the otherwise excellent Big Valley episode "The Odyssey of Jubal Tanner", which I already grumbled about years ago in this very thread.

Now that The Big Valley is *finally* completing its dvd releases, Neo, you need to get your a-, uh, "self" back into this thread for a fresh look at the series (and that goes for me, too).

Yes, this thread will need some updating as will the old Big Valley Yum thread, when I can! Neo's insights were always terrific on this show.

November will see the final season.
