The Wagon

Air Date: October 5, 1970

Written by: Ken Pettus

Directed by: James Neilson

Guest Stars: Denver Pyle (Price Buchanan), Salome Jens (Madge Tucker), Bing Russell (Deputy Clem Foster)

After being taken into custody by a sheriff who does not care if he is guilty or innocent of a crime, Hoss escapes from the prison wagon with a woman he is convinced got a raw deal.

Trivia: This was Denver Pyle’s 7 of 8 appearances in the series. He is probably best known for his role as Uncle Jesse on the CBS series, The Dukes of Hazzard (1979).

While working with John Wayne on The Alamo (1960), Wayne became impressed with Pyle’s photography and made special arrangements with his public relations office to designate Pyle as the official set photographer for the picture.
