  • In \"Stagecoach Seven,\" Heyes and Curry wind up prisoners during a siege at the stagecoach relay station when a gang of outlaws try to take them away from the stagecoach station defenders.moreless

    8.1
    In what passes for a lightweight version of the John Wayne classic \"Stagecoach\" (1939) and the Tyrone Power epic \"Rawhide\" (1951), Heyes and Curry find themselves taking a ride on a stagecoach with a variety of characters, some friendly and others less friendly. Ultimately, our heroes wind up prisoners of the man (Keenan Wynn)who runs the stagecoach relay station after a gang of outlaws beseige the place. Although nobody dies in this episode, the characters in \"Stagecoach Seven\" shoot off more rounds of ammunition that you\'ll find any virtually any \"Alias Smith & Jones\" episode. Steven Inhat plays an unfriendly passenger who learns how deadly fast with a gun Kid Curry is, while Sam Peckinpah favorite heavy L.Q. Jones leads the gang trying to take Heyes and Curry prisoner. Earlier, the gang held up the stage and robbed the passengers of their valuables. The chief bad man thought that he recognized Heyes and Curry, but he was only sure after they let the stagecoach go. The characters in the stagecoach change under the tense conditions that they endure during the barrage of gunshots that riddle the station with bullet holes. Predictably, our heroes win over the hearts of their captors. Look for a young Randolph Mantooth in a minor role as well as Geoffrey Lewis as an outlaw called \'Patch.\' Again, for a family friendly oater, this episode features more gunfire than most \"AS&J\'s\" shows. Like other episodes, \"Stagecoach Seven\" shows how single-minded our heroes are in pursuing the straight and narrow and they are rewarded for their efforts here again.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Randolph Mantooth, who starred as Firefighter/Paramedic John Gage on Emergency! starting in 1972, is a guest star in this episode. He plays a young man who, not surprisingly, comes to Heyes' and Curry's rescue at a crucial moment. Maybe they should've called it "Stagecoach 51"!

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Clint Weaver: Well now friend, this here's your lucky day.
      Charlie Utley: I don't start too many lucky days with no six-gun pressed to my neck.

    • Heyes: Begging your pardon, sir, but your rifle -- it's pointing at us.

    • Heyes: (To Harry Downs after he tries to turn Heyes & Curry over to the Weaver gang) You know, I was just about to apologize to you for what my partner did back in Benton Pass; I'm glad you stopped me.

    • Heyes: Charlie, that's an awful nice picture you're painting of us, but the truth is --
      Charlie: The truth is, you're both better fellas than you think you are.
