Synopsis
Dorothy McGuire returned to television after a long absence to star as a feisty, widowed desert farmer who takes on the water company by dynamiting the city-owned reservoir to spotlight her cause: the depletion of the valley's water to feed the city's aqueduct system. Bill Erwin is her dear old Paiute Indian friend; Victoria Racimo is his adopted daughter whom McGuire has educated as a lawyer; Richard Farnsworth is the sympathetic sheriff, a long-time family friend; and Bo Hopkins is the water department's chief engineer who is reluctant to fight the widow. Filmed in St. George, Utah, this sixth winner of the annual ABC Theatre Award is an original by Phil Penningroth.
