No sadness for the way this story ends
14 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jim Gatluf (Harold J Stone)is a hard man that is in charge of a small group of Buffalo Hunters. His goal in life is to make money by selling the hides and no one is going to stand in his way, not even the men that work for him.

Gatluf brings a man into town that has been badly burned by hot lead. Matt gets suspicious about the incident when the man dies and Gatluf will not even bury the body. When another of his men is discovered stabbed, Matt believes that Gatluf is killing off his men so that he will not have to pay them.

When Matt and Chester ride out to the Gatluf's camp another man has been stabbed but before dying is able to tell that Gatluf was the one that stabbed him. Matt is determined to arrest Jim Gatluf.

Well played by all involved. Harold Stone is excellent as the hard nose boss that only thinks of himself. Even James Arness seems refreshed in his role as he sets off to capture the hunter. A justifiable ending to an entertaining story.
