Fay Spain and Leonard Nimoy
4 October 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"A Man a Day" presents Marshal Dillon with a vicious gang led by Nick Cooner (Val Dufour), who offer Matt money to make himself scarce while they rob the Dodge City bank, otherwise they will murder one person each day until he knuckles under, threatening Doc, Chester, and Kitty as well. The next two days reveal the threat to be genuine, forcing Matt to set a trap for the deadly outlaws. Many familiar faces abound, including Fay Spain, Tom Fadden, and Arthur Peterson (The 'Major' on SOAP). As gang member Elias Grice, Leonard Nimoy gets at least one standout sequence with Dennis Weaver, smiling as he yearns for the opportunity to kill Chester. Still three years before his starring turn as Spock on STAR TREK, Nimoy was coming off an even better showcase in an episode of RAWHIDE, "Incident Before Black Pass."
