      From the fourth season of Laramie, The Fortune Hunter is one of the buddy shows that I love so much. By this I mean that it features both stars, John Smith and Robert Fuller, in their roles of Slim Sherman and Jess Harper. It’s the friendship between these two that really make this series, and when the focus is on just one character, it’s not as powerful as the shows like this one when

      they are together more than not.

      While it is a buddy show, the slight emphasis is on Slim, who is romantically involved with Kitty McAllen of Cheyenne. What I don’t like about the character of Kitty is that she’s a stereotypical female game player, getting mad at Slim and using Vince Jackson (Ray Danton) to manipulate Slim. She’s hoping for a marriage proposal, but things just don’t work out for her the way she wants ...


      • them to.

        Carolyn Craig plays Kitty. She does okay, but I was never enthralled with the performance. Danton, on the other hand, is perfectly evil and believable in this part. He’s a good actor and these types of sophisticated bad guys are right up his alley.

        I also love seeing Parley Baer as Kitty’s father, Eddy Waller as Mose the stagecoach driver, and Patricia Crest as Opal. Baer is a delight in these character

        roles, and Waller made you feel like you’d be safe with him taking you anywhere.

        The best part of the episode, however, were all the wonderful scenes with Jess and Slim. They teased each other throughout the show, and that makes me grin and feel very happy. The last bit had Slim chasing Jess with both of them ending up in the horse trough. Jess got out and quipped, “Ah, it ain’t even Saturday.”

        I love this show!
