Goofs

Someone calls Jacoby's pictures tintypes (ferrotypes). Jacoby is actually making wet-plate photographs, a completely different process. (This is confirmed by his saying that the image must be developed before the plate dries.) See more »

Imaginative entry. Arrogant photographer Jacoby (Cabot) comes to Dodge to "immortalize" the local characters for the folks back east. Problem is that he'll do most anything to get the photos he wants, causing Matt to cast a wary eye. Then a dead man scalped turns up and the evidence points to Jacoby. But what about the Indians camped outside of town.

Novel episode, especially the photo-taking scene in the saloon that also shows what a fine actress Blake was. The rotund Cabot is perfectly cast as the strong-willed, dislikable Jacoby. Suspense comes from wondering just how far Jacoby will go in his quest for another photo, and what will happen if he does.
