Video of the Week: “Big Jessie”

EDITOR’S NOTE 03/27/14: Another one removed for copyright infringement. Sorry about that, folks!

Our video for this week is the pre-credits sequence from “Big Jessie,” the episode of the Western series Cimarron Strip that first aired on February 8, 1968. Timothy and Donnelly Rhodes are a pair of outlaws on the run who are about to make life miserable for Marshal Jim Crown (Stuart Whitman).

Rhodes, born and raised in Winnipeg, has been a Canadian and American television stalwart since the late 1950s. His most notable recent performance is probably that of Dr. Cottle in the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
