Beautiful and slow
24 January 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Stacey Gregg is the focus of this Virginian episode. She's a beautiful but slow teen, daughter of Angela Clarke and Anthony Caruso and sister of Lou Antonio who rides for Shiloh.

The usual problems dealing with a child are p;resent here, but additionally Gregg overhears bank robber Jack Dodson shoot his partner and bury the loot from a recent robbery at Medicine Bow's bank. Dodson has also signed on at Shiloh until the heat goes away.

Nice performance from Gregg as the child/woman and also from Dodson who was also Howard Sprague on the Andy Griffith Show. This is as far from Howard Sprague as you can get.
