  • Claire is an interesting character, but her desperation for family, good or bad, causes her to make some naive and brusque decisions that aren't really the best
  • The man definitely had talent, and he could play villain as well as just about anyone

      From April 1967, The Virginian: The Strange Quest of Claire Bingham was the final episode of the fifth season. After an amusing opening scene with James Drury as The Virginian and a couple of odd and end scenes, including an action oriented chase of a Medicine Bow posse, the bulk of this 90 minute outing follows Clu Gulager and his character of Sheriff Emmett Ryker.

      L.Q. Jones, who recurs as


      a Shiloh cowhand named Belden, also has a scene that simply bridges the time gap as the show continues.

      The story is initiated by Sandra Smith’s character of Claire Bingham, who arrives in town and is eager to see the captured outlaw, Chuck Larson, as played by Andrew Prine. She thinks he’s her long lost brother, and she’s desperate to know the truth. This something that Larson plays upon,


      • while Ryker tries to keep the young woman from being hurt.

        As the story goes, Larson breaks out of jail, courtesy of his gang, and he gets shot in the process. Ryker searches for him, while also becoming closer to Claire. There’s a definite attraction there. I’m not big on love stories in this show, but this one is intriguing.

        Claire is an interesting character, but her desperation for

        family, good or bad, causes her to make some naive and brusque decisions that aren’t really the best.

        I do like the background musical score for the story. It has an odd allure that sets it apart from the regular theme.

        Smith portrays her role decently, and Prine is convincing as always. The man definitely had talent, and he could play villain as well as just about anyone.

        Overall, it was an enjoyable show.
