When Johnny kills the two men about to do the hanging, he fires two shots, and with each shot, one of the men falls dead. However, the first shot is seen and heard to go off when the gun is still pointing at the ground. See more »
I watched this as a kid in Hacienda Heights, CA and enjoyed it only because I was a big, 11-year-old Star Trek fan at the time and this came on in the middle of the original series run. Have not seen it since it's original run but remember Shatter doing his Commanche war cry that sounded like the horse winnies that came form his mouth in the original series Star Trek episode "Plato's Step Children" where a midget was on his back.
