Julia's no more to blame than Joe. Why should she have to be the one to change? It was just sad they couldn't get it together. When she said she knew she'd loved him from the first moment she saw him, I wondered, was that before or after she hit with the whip?
I found their parting very moving. :thumbup
This is one of the episodes where he's at his most irresistible. When he first meets her and picks himself off the ground, oh God, those are screenshot moments! I keep thinking, "How can one person be that GORGEOUS!!

OMG, Oxgirl - that bottom one!! I just swooned, but I haven't got any smelling salts! Fortunately I'm sitting - if I'd been stood up I'd be on the floor by now! MIKE, MIKE, COME BACK!!!

Height: 5' 8"
Height in Costume (1959-61): 5' 9-1/2"
Height in Costume (1961-73): 6' 1/2"
Yes, I read this too and we can see, that he gets taller. I prefer him in his natural size. Here where I live we use centimeters, I have to check out, how tall he really was, but he wasn't very small, he had a normal size, I think.
Was he only 5 8? I read 5 9 and he himself said he was 5 11 - but he could have been exaggerating! I know he was usually shorter than the men, and nearly always taller than the women. There was only one woman who was taller - Bessie Sue!

I don't know how many centimeters it is, I tried to find it out, but I'm not sure. I'm not a tal woman for me his size is ok. I think he really has a normal size and it doesn't matter if he is is a bit smaller than the other actors.

5 8 = 172/3 cm
5 11 = 180 cm

A fair bit to like in this ep, some very cute stuff. Too much singing for my liking, although I did quite like her performances but one would have been enough for me. I quite liked her, but they certainly weren't a good match for each other, I dont think. :no
I enjoyed Hoss worrying about fighting without his hat, that was cute. :laughing
Poor kid having to pack and unpack, although I suppose he must be used to it.
There's a part where they are having a serious chat about her and Joe says he's in love with her. Well, at one point PR is having trouble stifling giggles, I think. Hoss (DB) takes a particularly loud crunch on his apple and you can see PR sort of jolt like he's trying not to laugh, he sort of smiles and then looks away! :laughing

You can't really see it in this still, but I was mightily impressed by their horseshoe playing! Very acurate! I couldn't see how it could have been faked, so they must have both been very good at it. I've noticed this in other eps too, maybe they spent a lot of time practising! :ohmy

She flashed her pants at everyone in the show at one point! Most unladylike! :ohmy

I liked it when Hoss put up his hand to hold Joe back as he moved towards her during her song, was very cute and then Joe (or ML) was laughing.

Lovely finishing shot, but I wish they didn't fade it so quick, as they cut the bit where Ben grabs Joe's neck and pulls him forward and he laughs, that would have been cute to see more clearly! :mad

There's no way Joe and Julia could have made it as a couple. :no That's funny about Pernell getting the giggly-smirks when Joe claims to be in love with Julia. I'm usually watching Joe so I tend to miss what everyone else is doing. Horseshoes was played for many years, probably as long as we've had horses. My dad always played at picnics. The guys probably played sometimes also. :thumbup :whistling

Interesting, I have to watch this again. :laughing Sometimes, it must have been difficult for the actors to pull themselves together and not start to laugh.

It made me think that DB was crunching his apple very loudly on purpose to make people laugh or to put people off! :laughing
