TV series, 1980
Action and adventure series set during the 1870s Pilgrim’s Rest gold rush. Main characters are the hapless Sherman, who keeps on having run-ins with corrupt commissioner MacFarlane and bathhouse owner Benny Franks; his right-hand man Samson, an escaped prisoner; young Elizabeth who comes to Pilgrim’s Rest to get married but lands behind the bar counter when the engagement goes sour; Dynamite Dolly, who owns the local hotel and who digs her own claim; and Sonja, the prim and proper shop owner. The series was shot on set in Muldersdrift, with some scenes shot on location in Pilgrim’s Rest.
