Picks and Pans Review: The Chisholms

UPDATED 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (8 p.m. ET)

The pioneer trail is a showbiz rut, but in this mini-series (running four straight Thursdays), Robert Preston and Rosemary Harris are affecting as an 1840s couple wagoning to California with five kids. The trip (one delightful scene has daughter Stacey Nelkin being courted with hard-to-come-by candy) is beautifully filmed and acted.
