Classic TV: A Dickensian Twist in Colonial Times (Daniel Boone, 1968)

 From season 5 of Daniel Boone:

Israel (Darby Hinton) falls in with a gang of thieves led by a Colonial-era Fagin (Vincent Price), while Rebecca (Patricia Blair, ex-The Rifleman) & Daniel (Fess Parker) try to convince Rebecca's uncle (J. Pat O'Malley) to visit them in Boonesborough. Elena Verdugo, a few months before Marcus Welby, MD, and Butch Patrick (ex-The Munsters) also guest star.

Charles Dickens would've been proud.

Rating: A-.
