Richard Gaines as Jefferson Davis
8 August 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Mission--Varina" features Frieda Inescort as Mrs. Jefferson Davis, fearful that the upcoming release of her husband (Richard Gaines) could result in his death at the hands of either north or south. She asks Johnny Yuma to ensure he will have more than two escorts to safety, Mission Varina named for Mrs. Davis. The one drawback to the mission is the bitter presence of Charles Ashbaugh (William Schallert), whose intentions are hardly altruistic. Two Union soldiers plus two rebels make for an uneasy alliance. As Sgt. Mundale, Dan Sheridan concluded his fifth and final episode, while newcomer Buck Taylor was still six years away from joining the long running GUNSMOKE.
