James Whitmore appears again in this tale of a Marshal that is
approaching the end of his stellar career as a person needing great
reward for his performance as US Marshal Seth Campbell.
When Floyd Stryder is broke out of jail by some of his kin, Marshal
Campbell is called in with warrants to arrest the men. Six men agree to
be a part of his posse that includes Heath and Nick and also includes
When the posses comes up on the Stryders, they realize they are being
fired upon with a Gatling gun. However Marshal Campbell tells the men
to run straight into the gun fire. Much to the horror of Heath and Nick
two of the men are killed immediately.
Marshal Campbell claims that Nick and Heath are cowards and tells the
other man and his son to run into the gun fire. Heath knocks Campbell
unconscious to save the life of the others. When Campbell becomes alert
he accusing Heath and Nick of failure to obey an order. Heath and Nick
are placed on trial for their lives as Jarrod will do his best to show
that Marshal Campbell is unfit to command any outfit.
Even though this episode was nice done, when it came to the ending it
seemed to happen too quickly. I wished the episode had lingered on the
ending instead of an out-of-place arm wrestling scene in the middle of
the show. A good show that had an almost too quick ending.
