A nice story that for reasons did not play well.
11 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this lackluster episode, a drummer arrives in Dodge selling wares from the back of his buggy. As the slick salesman, Bob Sullivan, leaves town he runs into Mr Miller and his two sons that he has slicked out of money in another town. They burn out his wagon and start a beating only to be stopped by a woman and her three small children. The woman, Lorna Wright, lets Sullivan stay at her house as he heals.

When at the house we learn that one of the children, Nettie, has some sickness that is going to cut her life short. And Sullivan keeps her spirits up by saying 'if you really believe anything is possible'. But little does Ms Wright know, the drummer is out only for one person-himself.

Just could not get into this story. About fifteen minutes into the story the plot was so predictable that the enjoyment of watching was lost. And for some reason the actor playing Sullivan, Don Chastain, was so dry that he made his character almost disinterested. It appeared that Chastain just did not gel with the other actors. An otherwise nice story that needed some substance.
