Even with the odd set of characters, it was still entertaining
5 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

June Lockhart does a good job of playing a strange character called Beulah who appears to be a slow minded woman that is treated poorly by most of the town. However this one man, Nat Sieberts, always was nice to Beulah. Even from the beginning when Beulah learns that Nat is to marry another woman, Beulah appears to have been heartbroken.

But it just so happens that Henry, the brother of the woman Nat is to marry, believes that Nat is having an affair with Beulah and wants no shame on the family. He even threatens Nat at the Long Branch for everyone to hear.

Moments after Nat marries Polly Troyman, he is shot. Matt and Chester are on the case looking for Polly's brother for the killing.

This episode has a strange cast of characters. From Lockhart's portrayal of Beulah that was almost surreal- to Wayne Norris's performance as the man that does not know what he wants- this was an uncommon set of people for the story. But with the odd direction of the show it still had enough interest to keep the viewer glued to see the ending. Good show.
