Pic of the Day: “Teacher of Outlaws” revisited

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.

The first Friday of 2015 brings us another look at “Teacher of Outlaws,” the episode of The Big Valley that first aired on February 2, 1966. Preacher Clegg is a sardonic Scripture-quoting outlaw who unfortunately learns nothing during the episode.

This is to my mind one of the best episodes of the series. Check it out in its entirety here!

Video of the Week: “Teacher of Outlaws”

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!

Better late than never, our first pic for this week is another from “Teacher of Outlaws”. It’s the episode of the long-running Western series The Big Valley that was first broadcast on February 2, 1966. Timothy portrays Scripture-spouting outlaw Preacher Clegg, obviously a frustrated man of the cloth.

Please revisit this post and view this episode, directed by Michael Ritchie, in its entirety. It’s must-see TV!

Pic of the Day: “The Resurrection of Carlini” revisited

Today we take another look at Blanchard, the unhinged magician’s assistant of “The Resurrection of Carlini,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on November 19, 1982. He is being questioned by the cops, and is, predictably, not being very forthcoming.

Directing this episode was veteran television producer and director Arnold Laven, one of the co-founders of the Levy-Gardner-Laven production company. He produced Tim’s episode of The Big Valley, “Teacher of Outlaws” (2.2.66), directed by Michael Ritchie.

 

Video of the Week: “Teacher of Outlaws”

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.

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.

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).
