[Bill-Bill is singing a ballad in a remote cemetary]
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: That's pretty. Why are you singing way out here outside of town? Your singing's not that bad.
Bill-Bill MacWilliams: I like it better out here. 'Sides I don't like what's goin' on in town, Mr. Masterson.
[the sound of hammering can be heard]
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: That's a familiar sound - the sound of violence. They're building a scaffold for a hanging.

One of the more unique
3 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most decent Ecore Western Chanel runs... never really cared for them much (or in the 70's cop shows ran rampant) But Bat Masterson was an exception of a gem.

And this one of the most unique casts of the entire series..... a rather nasty Deforest Kelly (A few years later to forever be Star Trek's Dr McCoy...

And as the Marshal veteran character actor R.G. Armstrong (like 170 acting credits, this an early one about 4 years in) and a well out grown Little Rascal, but VERY young Robert Blake.

Well seems I have to come up with 5 more lines....

Haven't gotten to the end of the last season yet 1961

But it was interesting to see one episode obviously done on early video tape on a sound stage (All tight dirt on the floor street scenes and interiors a few episodes before this) as a few Twilight Zone's were that same year as the new TV medium.

Looked pretty darn awful, and and episodes since have been back to film.... guess the producers western were not meant for studios and early video tape (Were as T-Zone did lend itself to that much and Rod Serling got stuck with it quite a while.
