Highly Recommended!!
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(The late) Actor Will Geer did a brilliant job in playing the role of Ben Slocumb. Ben Slocumb played a lonely bounty hunter who was in search for the Riker Family hot on the trail. Slocumb's personality was a bit wry and dotty to some extent. Even then, he owed Marshal Matt Dillon a favor by seeking the family responsible for the vengeance killing of another friend earlier in his life. Even though he paid back Marshall Dillon for his role in arresting the Riker Boys for the killings in earlier times in Dodge City, he would be tried for attempted first-degree murder towards the end of the show. The dialog and scenery had glimpses of excitement in the show. Unfortunately, the emotional impact of the show was a bit too dull in "Slocumb." Even then, a 9 rating for this program would be a highly recommended episode to see on reruns ... especially when this episode was aired during the 1968-1969 Television Season. Enjoy!!
