Matt suspects the lawman in Elkader is not what he seems
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a gunfight at the beginning and ending of this episode that was some of the most horrible filmed scenes in the entire run of the series. But the part between the opening and closing scene is a solid gold performance by everyone involved.

Right at the beginning of the show a drunk criminal named Carey Post shoots Matt. Matt returns fire but is unable to injure the now fleeing Post. Matt knows that Post lives near Elkader and after recovering from his wound rides with Chester to apprehend the criminal.

Now here is when the story gets interesting. When Marshal Dillon arrives in Elkader he is surprised to hear that the town has a US Marshal named Joe Phy with the reputation of being a fast with his gun. But Marshal Dillon suspects that Joe is not really what he claims to be and gets help from a local drunk to prove his point.

Paul Richards does an outstanding job of playing all the emotions that came with a character like Joe Phy. The way Richards used his look and voice help the viewer to believe that were actually standing in Elkader watching the plot unfold. A wonderful episode that was a surprising watch.
