Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The made-for-TV family-Western Hitched is a sequel to the 1971 TV movie Lock, Stock and Barrel, with Sally Field stepping into the role originally played by Belinda Montgomery. Newly married couple Roselle and Clare Bridgeman (played by Field and Tim Matheson) head westward to seek their fortune, only to become accidentally separated. In their efforts to stage a reunion, both Roselle and Clare undergo a variety of exhilirating experiences involving outlaws, sharpsters, saloon gals, and a Native American or two. Originally telecast by NBC on March 31, 1973, Hitched was intended as the pilot for a weekly TV series, and as such was shown in tandem with another busted pilot, Savage, starring Martin Landau and Barbara Bain.
