19th Century figure Joaquin Murietta is a formerly wealthy and respected California landowner. However, he has lost his land, his wife, and everything else he held dear. Embittered and questioning his previous faith in God and man, he joins a disparate group of men hired to convey a wealthy man's wife away from the bandit-ridden countryside to safety in San Francisco. Murietta discovers that the convoy is also carrying a treasure of great material and religious value. He finds himself challenged to decide what he believes, and what he should do, in the face of threats to himself, to the convoy, and to the people of southern California.

In 1969 Ricardo Montalban’s Montalban Enterprises put together a project to produce a TV movie with Fox, and The Desperate Mission was screened by NBC in 1971 as a result. Montalban had been in Westerns since 1948 when he had a bit part as a dancer in Frank Sinatra’s The Kissing Bandit (fame indeed) but he had been second-billed to Clark Gable in Across the Wide Missouri and then topped the bill in 1951 in The Mark of the Renegade. After that, whenever TV casting directors wanted a tame Mexican they had Ricardo’s number in their Rolodexes. He was also Little Wolf for John Ford in Cheyenne Autumn (there was a Hollywood tradition of using Mexicans for Indians) but big-screen outings were rare. He was mostly a TV guy. I always thought he was rather good.

This is a Joaquin Murieta story, or at least nominally. Actually, it’s a generic Western and the hero could have been anyone but the Murieta name probably gave it appeal. As you probably know, Murieta (or Murrieta or Murietta) was a famous figure during the California gold rush in the 1850s – either a common bandit or a Mexican hero, depending on your point of view. He was supposed to be the inspiration for Zorro (actually, Ricardo would have been a good Zorro). Walter Noble Burns wrote a sensational biography of Murieta in 1932.

The story of The Desperate Mission (it’s not all that desperate, actually) is set in the late 1840s, though of course this does not stop the characters having 1870s Winchesters and wearing 1870s (or rather 1960s) Stetsons. Murieta has been dispossessed of his property, his wife murdered and his hacienda burnt. He sets out as an adventurer to make back his fortune. He meets up with an Anglo outlaw, Shad Clay (Earl Holliman) and joins Clay and his men on a mission, charged by Don Miguel (Anthony Caruso, hooray) with taking Señora Ruiz (Ina Balin) to San Francisco to catch a boat back to Spain for safety – you see California is suffering at the hands of marauders.
