Pretty cut and dried

Bat Masterson is in the New Mexico town of Eden, run by Sam Shanks, a vicious rancher with a crew of gunmen, one of whom has just murdered an innocent man. In order not to bring heat from the territorial governor, Shanks sets up a phony "trial" in which he will see that his man is found innocent. Bat finds himself appointed prosecutor, but Shanks and his gunmen aren't about to take a chance on their man being found guilty. This is a pretty run-of-the-mill episode, almost all of it shot on a cramped soundstage, and has a rushed look to it. The writing is nothing special, the acting by the mostly no-name cast is perfunctory, and the resolution is as expected. I've seen some pretty good "Bat Masterson" episodes, but this isn't one of them.
