  • The Sam Spicer Story is not a big favorite of mine
  • The Barnaby West character was one for the young girls, but even though I was even younger when I saw this, I was watching Wagon Train for Robert Fuller, and this is a show where he isn't featured, so it's not a show that particularly had me all that interested

      Another Wagon Train episode from season seven was The Sam Spicer Story, which guest starred Ed Begley and Clu Gulager. The story focuses on teenager, Barnaby West, as played by Michael Burns. He’s a recurring character on the show, appearing in many of the episodes almost like a regular. Here, Barney, as he’s known, is growing through some growing pains while also having some doubts about his place on the

      wagon train. The boy ends up being taken hostage by outlaw Sam Spicer (Gulager), who takes a strange liking to the boy.

      Begley plays Reno Sutton, Spicer’s partner. He’s not so thrilled to have the boy around. This creates tension between the two long-time partners. As the three travel, West gets lured into the lifestyle and believes less and less that his surrogate father, Chris Hale, the wagonmaster, will ...


      • try and find him. Of course, Hale and Charlie Wooster are both giving chase.

        Wagon Train: The Sam Spicer Story is not a big favorite of mine. The Barnaby West character was one for the young girls, but even though I was even younger when I saw this, I was watching Wagon Train for Robert Fuller, and this is a show where he isn’t featured, so it’s not a show that

        particularly had me all that interested. I have always been a little fascinated by Gulager, and he’s the one thing that kept me focused on the show at all. His voice is so distinctive; it’s different and just makes him a curious person to watch.

        The show does take a surprise turn at one point that also serves the overall story well by keeping it surprising and unpredictable to a degree.
