An interesting twist to an old plot.
21 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is a very unique story that had all the makings of a fine mystery novel but was played as a western theme making for an entertaining watch for the series.

It starts as Jeff and Kate Kinsman are in town to pick up supplies. We then see a fairly handsome man, Dolliver, enter the General Store. Kate gets off the wagon and goes inside the store only to return and tell her husband that the handsome Dolliver was coming on to her. A near fight breaks out between Jeff and Dolliver before Marshal Dillon is able to break it up and send the people on their own way.

A day later, Kate comes into town and advises that her husband has been shot and killed by the sweet talking Dolliver. Matt goes out to investigate but does not have enough evidence to arrest. Now Kate feels bad for the murder since it was her fault the two men were fighting. But Matt believes there is more to this murder than meets the eye.

This was an interesting story when someone thinks more of themselves than is really possible. Florence MacMichael was a nice pick to play the homely Ms Kinsman and of course John Anderson, as Dolliver, always plays his character to perfection. A wonderful acted episode that was a entertaining to watch.
