From the movie "The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West"(1976)
...which simply strung together three episodes of the not very popular "Gilligan's Island" remake "Dusty's Trail" (1973)
Here's how it goes:
Produced by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, this series took the
character of Gilligan, changed his name to Dusty, placed him on a wagon train and dared him
to try to find the west! They surrounded Dusty with very recognizable characters -
The wagon master played by Forrest Tucker (Skipper);
a rich couple, Ivor Francis and Lynn Wood (Mr. & Mrs.
Howell); saloon girl Jeannine Riley (Ginger);
school marm Lori Saunders (Mary Ann); and an
engineer played by Bud Cort (Professor). With Dusty
as guide, the wagon train wandered all over the place,
and it was a sure bet that this group would never
make its way west, in much the same way the
castaways were never able to get off the island thanks
to the lovable, well-meaning Gilligan...Starring:
Bob Denver - Dusty,
Forrest Tucker - Wagonmaster Callahan, also
Ivor Francis - Mr. Carson Brookhaven,
Lynn Wood - Mrs. Brookhaven,
Jeannine Riley - Lulu McQueen,
Lori Saunders - Betsy,
Bill Cort - Andy

This special was mainly Dusty Springfield's idea, to promote the Motown music and artists in Britain. Dusty was an occasional presenter of the weekly Ready Steady Go (which had the tag line... The Weekend Starts Here). She was a big fan of Motown music, and suggested the idea for this special to Vicki Wickham, recording artists manager, and RSG's producer at Rediffusion.

Does anyone else remember this wonderful song? I loved all these tearjerkers...still do.
The Monarchs were a very popular local group that traveled extensively to promote their records.
