THE BIG VALLEY – THE COMPLETE SERIES ONE
THE BIG VALLEY was an American western television series which ran on successful originally on ABC (in the USA) from September 15, 1965, to May 19, 1969 and subsequently all over the world. It starring the legendary Hollywood star Barbara Stanwyck, as the widow of a wealthy 19th-century California rancher. This character was the mainstay of the series. Victoria Barkley was the owner and head of the Barkley ranch.
In fact, Stanwyck’s refusal to portray Barkley as fragile was controversial at the time. Barkley’s husband Tom had been killed six years prior to the beginning of the series. Victoria Barkley loved and was proud of all her children, including her late husband’s illegitimate son, Heath, whom she would refer to as “my son”. Stanwyck, who went from the refined, elegant lady of the manor to a jean clad cowgirl as tough as any cowboy, appeared in the most episodes. The real Hill Ranch at the western edge of Calaveras County survived until 1931, when the Mokelumne River ran through it.
