  • Bound for New Orleans

    8.0
    Patricia Blair, like many female actresses on Westerns, was often used mainly as window dressing. Though she wasn't Meryl Streep or Katherine Hepburn, Ms. Blair was a competent actress who should have been given more to do in the series and probably would have had Daniel Boone been filmed in these more "enlightened" times. Nevertheless, there were several episodes where she had substantial screen time and Perilious Journey is one of them.



    The storyline has Daniel and Rebecca Boone finally taking a long delayed honeymoon to New Orleans. But, as is usually the case with the best laid plans, something goes awry. Daniel has to complete the mission of murdered army officer who was carrying a top secret dispatch to New Orleans. He tells Rebecca to stay behind due to the possibility of extreme danger but stubborn Rebecca plows right on ahead into the middle of things. As was the case with many Daniel Boone episodes, we have the appearance of a real life historical figure, the Marquis de Lafayette. Plus there's the arrogant British villain as well as a climactic scene on the docks of New Orleans that comes straight out of Batman. Perilous Journey rates as a good episode in my book especially if you're a fan of Patricia Blair.moreless
