Another great script

Another excellent tale about the local drunk that everyone likes and a dandy card dealer and both seem to have some hidden past.

As the episode begins, Dan Clell comes into the Long Branch asking for a job as a Faro dealer. For some reason the mild quiet drunk, Tom Cassidy, tried to assault Clell with a empty bottle of rye only he was too drunk to really do anything. Clell pulls out his gun and tell the drunk that if he ever tries that again he will kill him.

Matt asks Clell why the meek drunk would try to harm him. Clell tells the Marshal that he has never met Cassidy before in his life. But there has to be some reason for the problem. And the reason is what makes this an excellent show to watch.

Character actor John Dehner puts on another fine performance as the lovable town drunk that must be harboring some ill feelings toward the card dealer. And the lovely Peggy McCay is never as beautiful as the card dealer's wife. For the viewer there really was not a good way for this episode to end- either way, for some reason, justice would have seemed undone. Good show.
