      The Virginian: Riff-Raff was half drama and half comedy. It guess starred Ray Danton and Don Durant, who both had some funny moments, but the real smiles came with Karl Swenson as Teddy Roosevelt. This was Teddy beginning his Rough Riders. In a comedy of decisions, Trampas (Doug McClure) leaves Shiloh Ranch to sign up for

      the Rough Riders. This is after Molly Wood (Pippa Scott) returns from a trip and can’t stop talking about the war.

      The Virginian sends Steve (Gary Clarke) after Trampas, and this leads to more comedy. Finally, the Virginian himself has to go after his AWOL ranch hands when he gets word that Steve has also joined up.

      What happens after that ...


      • really is pretty funny. There’s a crazy polo match between soldiers from the east and those from the west. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Ray Danton do comedy. He’s normally so intense, but he had some humorous moments here and did pretty good, I though.

        Bing Russell, father of Kurt, has a nice role here, and Judson Pratt

        as Harry is a real hoot and a holler.

        I rather like The Virginian: Riff-Raff, except for the last scene, the tag, which seems forced and a huge let down. It was like they tried to do an ending at the last minute, a wrap up, and it just didn’t work. Other than that, this one wasn’t bad at all.
