Quotes

Denver McKee: All right, it's about time I started taking care of my own house. I've taken care of other people's houses for twenty years - what the devil did it ever get me? A hundred dollars a month, a lot of plaques, a pat on the back and a bullet in the shoulder!

The Bitterness of Old Age
13 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Like so many stars from the Thirties when work on the big screen dried up for them, Franchot Tone turned to the stage and the small screen. He was still a big enough name to command guest star billing. In the Bonanza episode Denver McKee he plays a retired sheriff who finds that he can't live on what he's saved and on plaques and compliments. He recruits a gang that starts preying on the good citizens in and around Virginia City.

Which brings the Cartwrights into the act. One of them, Michael Landon, has an additional interest, Tone's pretty daughter Natalie Trundy who's returned from the east from a finishing school paid for by the outlaw's stolen loot.

Tone's gives a fine performance of a bitter old man who thinks life has passed him by. A bit of a harbinger for what Randolph Scott did in Ride The High Country although Tone gets no chance at redemption.

One of Bonanza's best from the early years.
