Quotes

Charlie Drain: My own pa was lynched, Marshal. A mob strung him up by mistake. I was just a boy, but I saw them do it. It laid on my mind ever since. It's a big thing with me, Marshal. I can't endure seeing lynchers getting off free.

Episode begins powerfully. Good Samaritan drifter helps greenhorn farmer O.Z. Whitehead get oriented to new surroundings, but the sympathetic Whitehead is woefully unprepared to take on hazards of the frontier. Two bad guys including Bing Russell (Kurt's dad) come along and confront Whitehead over his horse that has no brand. They steal the horse and hang Whitehead. Matt and townspeople mistake hanging as vigilante justice for horse thief. However, rancher (George Mc Cready) has been traumatized by lynchings in his past and vows vengeance on vigilantes, putting him in conflict with lawman Dillon.

Plot never quite gels, despite promising premise. McCready overacts his part, particularly in the first scene. Maybe sharper direction would have helped, but plot elements fail to pack the punch that's implicit in the potential. Result is a disappointingly average entry that should have been much more.
