A nice story about Fake-Friends
14 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a show that had more of a comedy theme than a western, the characters is what made this episode stand out from the rest.

Cliff Shanks (John Larch) has fallen on bad times. His farm is repossessed, his livestock has to be sold far below value and his wife left him for another man in town. All this makes Cliff decide to leave Dodge and set off for mining gold in Colorado. With the hopes of coming back to Dodge after striking it rich and buying back all his property.

When Cliff starts mining he discovers that mining is hard work for a man his age. One day Indians attack his camp but is saved by a lone rider named Print Quimby (Buddy Ebsen).

Cliff decides to ride back into Dodge and pretend that they have struck a large amount of gold. While in Dodge words get around that Cliff and Quimby have a large amount of gold in the bank's safe. Now all the so-called friends that turned Cliff out come wanting a part of his money. He gets his farm back, his cattle returned and even his wife wants to return as if nothing had happened. the story is coming down on who is going to get the last laugh.

I enjoyed the the story. A well acted and at times humorous episode of true life. A nice watch.
