      In 1982’s Seven Brides for Seven Brothers: Dreams, Cameron Mitchell guest stars as Ben Shepherd, who works for the lumber company. Brian (Drake Hogestyn) decides he wants to learn that business and takes a break from the ranch for a while.

      The merits of the show aside, there was a goof right off the bat. It’s a visual faux pas that sometimes people notice, but usually they don’t. We tend to just let


      things go by. In this case, I was already chuckling because as the music was playing and we were seeing lumber shots, we also see Brian walking with the lumber supervisor towards Shepherd’s position. As they passed a building with a low overhang, you can see Brian actually bump into it and raise up his hand. Maybe that’s why I then noticed that when the camera focused in on the other side ...

      • of the building, Brian and the supervisor had reversed positions. Brian should have been on the other side of the man. It’s a common continuity error, but amusing anyway.

        At any rate, while the drama is unfolding with Shepherd’s sometimes ‘in your face’ behavior, a more comedic story line is going on with Evan (Tim Topper), whose football coach forces him to attend dance class. That has all the obvious little plots of

        a reluctant male facing ridicule but learning something in the process.

        Lisa Lindgren and Drew Snyder guest star, if you can call Lindgren a guest star. She got a lot of camera time, but mostly, she smiled and looked pretty. It was the veteran Mitchell who really gives the standout portrayal. His is an intriguing, complex man.

        While this isn’t one of my favorite episodes, it’s still a solid entry for the family drama.
