One of those men
4 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always loved this episode. Not only because of the haunting thought of Pa and Adam Cartwright getting hung, but also because hotty Vic Morrow is in this episode.

The episode begins with a certain eeriness when Adam and Ben are on their last day. Joe and Hoss are doing everything they can possibly to do get a stay of execution. They've gotten one of the townfolk to work on collecting signatures for the governor, but they are also trying to talk to the witnesses.

Then a stranger rides into town. He's looking for some men who wronged somebody he knew, and he means to make it right. At first he thinks it's Ben, but after meeting him and learning of the situation he takes the side of the Cartwright's and is determine the save the father/son duo from begin hung that evening.

A woman's father was killed, and she's the only living witness to tell what had happened. She wants revenge for her father's death, and the whole town is scared of a gang riding into town. Vic Morrow did an excellent performance in this one! His story is sad, and the life he's currently living is even sadder. But a cowboy's gotta do what a cowboy's gotta do.
