Pic of the Day: “Teacher of Outlaws” revisited

Our pic today revisits “Teacher of Outlaws,” one of, in my opinion, the best episodes of The Big Valley. It was first broadcast on February 2, 1966. Timothy gets some quality screen time as Preacher Clegg, the Scripture-spouting gunslinger. This shot is almost the first thing we see as the episode begins.

Teacher of Outlaws - 1966

This episode was directed by Michael Ritchie, who went on to helm some of the most enjoyable films of the 1970s, including Prime Cut (1972), The Candidate (1972), Smile (1975), and The Bad News Bears (1976).
