The Dr Denker Story – Wagon Train TV show
Directed by Joseph Pevney. With John McIntire, Robert Fuller, Denny Miller, Frank McGrath. Duke and Charlie are taken prisoner by servants of Princess Mei Ling, matriarch of a hidden Chinese empire, and forced to work as slaves. The series was inspired by the 1950 film Wagon Master directed by John Ford and starring Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr. and Ward Bond, and harkens back to the early widescreen wagon train epic.
