A friend in need is a friend indeed
27 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this sad tale, we have a man named Olie Ridges that lives outside Dodge that has a mule and a few pigs on his land. He loves being outdoors so much that he does not even have a house. He prefers being outside and not cooped inside a box.

He has been having some trouble with some local roughs that want all the land in the area for themselves. When Olie's good friend, Jim Branch, takes him to Dodge one evening. Someone goes by his place and kills Olie's mule and his hogs. Olie knows that it was the roughs that has been after him to move. Olie decides to take the law into his own hands even if means hanging. But he may get something even worse that he cannot even comprehend.

A very interesting yet sad story with a powerful message about friendship. Well done by the actors and writer. This is the kind of show that makes 'Gunsmoke' worth watching.
