Storyline

Adam stops Howard Mead from robbing Johann Brunner and his sister Hilda. However, Howard's talent for singing and guitar playing, along with his hard-luck stories, persuade Adam to give him another chance, and Hilda agrees to drop the charges. This may be a mistake, as Howard's talents cannot hide his dark side even as Hilda falls for him. Written by rbecker28

A stranger comes to town with a guitar and a past
20 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the finest episodes in the first six years of the series. Uncompromising script, fine direction, unique camera angles, and an excellent performance by Hoyt Axton (Are the songs original?). And Pernell Roberts always giving the proceedings a touch of the bizarre. Little Joe was almost always given first crack at the young starlets who came and went from Virginia City and/or the Ponderosa. The quirky or novelty episodes were generally reserved for Hoss (i.e. "Hoss and the Leprechauns"). Ben was always there to counsel, advise and tell the boys to get their boots off the table. Adam had the more unique confrontations. Most of the time with other men: ("Thanks for everything friend" with Rory Calhoun, "Broken Ballad" with Robert Culp, "The Crucible" with Lee Marvin.) "Dead and Gone" is one the best.
