Change of Pace
3 August 2019 | by mandidogSee all my reviews

I am a fan of MeTV's Saturday Westerns. I have to admit Wagon Train is one of my least favorites in their line-up. But today I really enjoyed Princess of a Lost Tribe. Besides the fact that Linda Lawson is much better looking than she is an actress I could not take my eyes away from the screen. It was a nice change of pace in all the back to back Westerns, and I'm sure they had a lot fun shooting it. I can see that a Wagon Train purist would not like it, but I enjoyed it.
