      Wagon Train: The Jed Whitmore Story is an intriguing episode of this series. The very unique Neville Brand stars as Jed Whitmore, a one time train robber who is now a sheriff of Stringtown. He goes by the name of Frank Lewis and has a wife and daughter, who is a young woman named Patsy.

      Patsy is returning from a trip and is traveling with the

      Hale wagon train. It’s quite obvious that she is very in-like with Cooper Smith, the wagon train’s number one scout. Coop is intrigued by Patsy, but she’s ready to settle down, and he’s not. This is a very intriguing relationship for the show. They aren’t dating at all, but there’s this subtle story going on. He knows she likes him, and he ...

      • likes her,but they are at different places in life. I liked this somewhat different take on what is so often the romance of the week.

        The drama unfolds when Whitmore’s older brother, Harry, just out of jail, brings a reporter with him to Stringtown with the promise of a story on Jed. This, of course, threatens ‘Frank’s’ existence.

        Brand is very good as Whitmore/Lewis. I don’t

        always enjoy his performances, but I thought this one had depth, humanity, and spirit. He makes the show a success. My only real criticism is that there’s a big segment after Coop brings Patsy home that is solely focused on the town without any of the Wagon Train regulars there. That’s a minor complaint. Once Cooper returned, he was a big part of what happened.
