Episode Summary

EDIT
The Mountain
AIRED:
Like Ernest Hemingway, and like the character out of his novel The Sun Also Rises, the elder Wilson Ford is a renowned novelist with a "secret" that motivates him to act with abandon. In order to hone his writing skills, and to prove his mettle, Ford constantly puts his courage to trial by performing daring, bold, and often foolish deeds. Against his wife's wishes, Ford cajoles Bronson into a mountain hike that pits the older Ford against a youthful Bronson in a dangerous trek.moreless

  • bronson meets a hemingway/Mailer-like writer and engages in competition to climb a mountain

    7.8
    This one starts like one of the early "triangle" episodes, with a beautiful married woman of a certain age apparently attracted to Bronson. in fact, she is in love with her damaged goods writer husband, a cross between Hemingway and Mailer. The triangle turns out to be Bronson, Ford (the writer, played by Stuart Whitmore) and a 12,000 foot high mountain. After some early disputes between Bronson and Ford about their differences of opinion concerning the importance of competition, the two work together to climb a snowy mountain. The episode never quite gels, and throughout the episode the glances cast by the lovely wife at Bronson never lead to anything. something of a disappointment as an episode.moreless
