Synopsis

Seven Alone
A septet of settler's children find themselves orphaned and alone following a disaster on the Oregon trail. This fact-based, family-oriented adventure chronicles their cross-country odyssey as they make their way westward. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Wanted: The Sundance Woman
Katherine Ross, who played Etta Place in 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, reprises the role for the made-for-TV Mrs. Sundance Rides Again. History doesn't record what exactly happened to former schoolteacher Etta after Butch and Sundance were shot full of holes in Bolivia, but it isn't likely that she ran guns for Pancho Villa in Mexico. We could be wrong, however, for that is exactly what she does in this grimy little film. Hector Elizondo plays Villa rather nervously, as though he's afraid his agent will find out. Mrs. Sundance Rides Again was originally telecast as Wanted: The Sundance Woman--the same week in 1976 that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid made its network TV debut. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Pioneer Woman
Though set in Wyoming, Pioneer Women was lensed in the unspoiled wilderness of Alberta, Canada. Joanna Pettet plays the title role, one of many Wyoming homesteaders of the post-Civil War era. Joanna endures the death of her husband (William Shatner), then must decide whether or not to make a go of her new home with only the help of her children. The supporting cast is dotted with past and future TV series stars: The Fugitive's David Janssen, Werewolf's Lance LeGault, and Mad About You's Helen Hunt, here cast as Pettet's 10-year-old daughter. Made for television, Pioneer Woman first aired December 19, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Proud Rebel
A gentler but no less resourceful Alan Ladd stars in The Proud Rebel. Ladd is cast as civil war veteran John Chandler, while the star's son David (who grew up to become a powerful Hollywood producer) plays Chandler's emotionally disturbed son David. Since suffering a traumatic shock during the war, David has not spoken a single word. With his son in tow, John wanders the frontier in search of a doctor who might cure David's muteness. Along the way, he runs afoul of sheep baron Harry Burleigh (Dean Jagger), and for a brief period is forced into indentured servitude to pay a debt to farm woman Linnet Moore (Olivia de Havilland). Falling in love with Linnet, John vows to protect her land from the covetous machinations of Burleigh and his brood. It is during the climactic set-to between good guys and bad that David at long last finds his voice again. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
