A fairly standard episode of the series, introduced by host John Lund,
which really only stands out because of the appearance of the future
40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan. Reagan plays a
former New York cop turned western lawman who comes to town with a
reputation of being pretty good with a gun. That's just what the folks
in Abilene are expecting. They're disappointed when they discover their
new lawman has given up guns and will only use his fists and his wits
to keep law and order in their town. Reagan gives his usual standard
performance, which is always a little on the wooden side (there's a
reason he left acting for politics!) but is helped out by the support
of a number of character actors, including Leo Gordon (he played Big
Mike McComb on "Maverick") as the town's bad guy. All in all, a quite
watchable little episode.
