On the 108th anniversary of the birth of Barbara Stanwyck, we take another look at “Teacher of Outlaws,” the episode of The Big Valley that premiered on February 2, 1966. Preacher Clegg, Scripture-spouting outlaw, makes eyes at Victoria Barkley. It doesn’t do him any good, but you really can’t blame him too much.
Like Timothy, a native of Brooklyn, Miss Stanwyck was born Ruby Catherine Stevens. She became a Ziegfeld girl at the age of 16 and never looked back. In a career that spanned seven decades, she portrayed everything from blushing ingenues to steely matriarchs, stamping each role with the indelible Stanwyck imprimatur. She’s a constant inspiration to me and countless other women, showing us when it’s time to be vulnerable and when it’s time to start kicking some ass. Thumbs up, all the way.
Here’s one from the archives, in honor of the birthday anniversary of the legendary Barbara Stanwyck. She was born on this date in 1907. It’s the episode of The Big Valley known as “Teacher of Outlaws”, premiering on February 2, 1966 and directed by Michael Ritchie. Timothy has another excellent role as Preacher Clegg, Scripture-quoting outlaw.
It would have been so great to know what Stanwyck thought of working with Tim. When legends collide!
Our video of the week is the episode of The Big Valley known as “Teacher of Outlaws”. It was first aired on February 2, 1966. Timothy shines as Preacher Clegg, the Scripture-spouting gunslinger who has an eye for the ladies, even if they’re old enough to be his mother. (But it is Barbara Stanwyck, so you can’t blame him too much.)
Again I apologize for the ads, but that’s Hulu for you. I truly believe this is one of the best episodes of the series, with or without Tim (but preferably with, am I right?). Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
To celebrate the birthday anniversary of the legendary Barbara Stanwyck (105 years ago today!), today’s pic revisits “Teacher of Outlaws,” the episode of The Big Valley that first aired on February 2, 1966. Preacher Clegg is being told by his boss Sam Beldon (Harold J. Stone) to back off of Victoria Barkley.
Even though Victoria is old enough to be Clegg’s mother, that don’t make no never mind to him. This is one of the best episodes of the series, I think; well worth your time. Stanwyck’s spirit lives on in the hearts of the strong, sassy women she inspires daily. Long may she reign!
Today’s pic (click for embiggening you will) is another from Tim’s appearance on The Big Valley. The episode is “Teacher of Outlaws,” which first aired on February 2, 1966. Scripture-spouting outlaw Preacher Clegg is making eyes at Victoria Barkley (Barbara Stanwyck), which is weird when you consider that she’s old enough to be his mother. But then, it is Miss Barbara Stanwyck after all.
Westerns were still a hot television property in the 1960s, and Tim appeared in a bunch of them – The Virginian, Cowboy in Africa, Rawhide, Cimarron Strip, Daniel Boone.
It’s Wednesday and you know what that means – time for the Video of the Week. Today we feature Tim’s appearance in The Big Valley episode “Teacher of Outlaws,” which first graced TV screens on February 2, 1966. He portrays Preacher Clegg, a Scripture-quoting bad guy.
It’s weird to see him making eyes at a woman old enough to be his mother, but it is Miss Barbara Stanwyck after all.
