The Morrow Sisters
14 August 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode has a trio of people coming to Medicine Bow to celebrate the town's 25th anniversary. One is sailor Tom Tryon who's a lusty lad with tales from all over the world.

The other is a pair of fraternal twin sisters played by Shirley Knight and Carol Lynley. These two are a lot alike the Corsican Brothers the Franchis from that classic Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. As you remember Fairbanks played the twins and one of them had moments of madness and desired to kill the other.

That was Lynley here and she delivers one of her best performances on the big or small screen. Lee J. Cobb gets a broad hint of her madness early on and he decides to just be discreet.

The Virginian more than most westerns gave the guest stars center stage and the cast was mere background sometimes. This is one of those episodes.
