For old times' sake
16 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An old friend of Matt, Dutch George, comes to Dodge for a visit riding a Bay Horse. But this is not the usual friend that a lawman would have, this man is a known horse thief but he has been able to skirt the law since he usually gets other people to do the dirty work. And like so many times in the past the Bay Horse he is riding is stolen.

Right before getting into Dodge Dutch George robbed some naive looking kid of the horse and thirty dollars. Since Dutch has done this many times he knows the green cowboy will not pursue the matter until he has the horse safely out of town.

Sure enough the next morning after Dutch leaves Dodge, the young cowboy named Jimmy McQueen comes to the Marshal's office to talk with Matt. When Jimmy describes the horse Matt knows that it was Dutch George. So off goes Matt, Chester and Jimmy to find Dutch and the horse.

But along the way they will find out that Jimmy McQueen is not as green as he looks. In fact Matt should have known not to trust a stranger.

This was a entertaining story with a coy twist in the plot. Tom Pittman that played young Jimmy McQueen appeared to be on a road of stardom until his untimely death in an automobile accident two years late at age 26. Robert Middleton deliverers another fine performance as the sly Dutch George that seems to evade the law around every turn. After a few shows that was not up to par, it was nice to return to the roots of westerns and watch this fine show.
