Ambush at Rio Lobo

Ambush at Rio Lobo

Air Date: October 24, 1972

Written by: Joel Murcott

Directed by: Nicholas Colasanto

Guest Stars: Sian Barbara Allen (Teresa Burnside), James Olson (Vance), Albert Salmi (Stretch)

Outlaws waiting to rob a stage hold Ben and a pregnant woman hostage.

Trivia: Sian Barbara Allen (Theresa Burnside) was an actress who worked primarily in the 1970s, and dated actor Richard Thomas (John Boy from The Waltons) for a few years in the early ’70s.

This was Albert Salmi’s fourth and final appearance in the series. He was, in real life, quite different from most of the characters he played. A quiet-natured family man, he was an oddity by glitzy Hollywood standards. Many of his friends and co-stars have commented on his sense of humor and his lack of pretense. In semi-retirement, he shared his knowledge of theatre by teaching drama classes in Spokane, Washington, where he and his wife settled.
