CRANE'S PLANS GO AWRY AND HE IS JAILED ON MATTER OF PRINCIPLE,

IN PREMIERE OF "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS,"

WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 22

Crane is arrested and jailed for instigating ranchers to raid a warehouse to take their grain back, after the grain is seized by authorities when the warehouse owner goes bankrupt, in the premiere of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Sept. 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. James Sheldon directed from a script by Marshall Herskovitz.

(EDITORS NOTE: A 90-minute special preview of this series is also to be broadcast, on Sunday, Sept. 19 (8:00-9:30 PM, PT).

Having persuaded his brothers to borrow heavily to buy grain at a low price and store it in Frelang's Warehouse, Crane feels responsible for the family's financial distress after the grain is seized when Frelang declares bankruptcy.

At his court hearing, ordered by the judge to identify his co-conspirators in the raid, Crane refuses, taking full responsibility and maintaining that, in this case, the law perversely harmed innocent citizens.

Peter Horton, as Crane, sings a song titled "Deep Inside," with words and music by Jimmy Webb.

"Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," which is currently being filmed entirely on location in Calaveras Country, Calif., is a David Gerber Co. production in association with MGM Television. Gerber is executive producer and James H. Brown and Richard Fielder are the producers.

EVAN'S CONFIDENCE TAKES A SPILL WHEN HE TWICE FAILS TRYOUTS

FOR RODEO CLASS, ON "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," SEPT. 29

* * *

Hoyt Axton Is Special Guest-Star as Rodeo Champ Who Tests Evan's Grit

* * *

Evan's self-confidence is challenged when his hero, a former rodeo champion, rejects him in rodeo-class tryouts, and Ford suffers the pangs of shyness and first infatuation, on "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Sept. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. Harvey Laidman directed from a script by Mitzie Marvin.

With Hannah pushing him, Ford struggles to overcome his shyness and ask pretty Cleo (guest star Melissa Michaelsen) to a barn dance. Evan, meanwhile, has failed twice to make it into Cooper Johnson's (Hoyt Axton) rodeo class.

Later, Adam and Hannah fight over the difference between encouragement and badgering: Hannah accuses Adam of pushing Evan to try one more time to get into Cooper's class, and Adam says Hannah is forcing Ford into dating girls when he's not ready yet.

In the episode, Terri Treas, Roger Wilson, Peter Horton and Drake Hogestyn sing "You Gotta Treat a Woman Like a Horse," an original song, music and lyrics by Jimmy Webb.

CRANE'S WOUNDED PRIDE STANDS IN THE WAY

OF THE CAREER OF HIS LADY LOVE, MOLLY,

IN "SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS," OCT. 6

* * *

Ann Dusenberry Guest Stars as Veterinarian Molly McGraw

* * *

The romance that has blossomed between Crane and veterinarian Molly McGraw creates a painful dilemma for them when she wins a surgical internship that will keep them apart for three years, on "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Wednesday, Oct. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. Vince McEveety directed from a script by Sue Grafton and Steven Humphry based on a story by Tim Maschler.

Peter Horton (Crane) and Roger Wilson (Daniel) perform a song written for this episode, "For Sure, For Certain, Forever, For Always," music and lyrics by Jimmy Webb.

When Evan's horse, Diablo, suffers a broken leg, pretty Molly McGraw is the only veterinarian available to perform the surgery that's needed. She and Crane fall head over heels for each other, but Crane's stubborn McFadden pride resists when Molly soon thereafter tells him she has received the internship in equine surgery she has been seeking -- a commitment that means she will have to leave California and move back East.
