Amanda Blake is excellent in this surprising show
17 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A surprising episode that featured Amanda Blake at her very best.

When a group of bandit comes into Dodge they take the town by storm. With Marshal Dillon out-of-town, the group led by Dan Whelan lock up Newly and Festus and take control of the town. They rob and take everything and anything they wish- from the bank to the general store. They even take money and jewelry from people walking down the street.

It is not long before they end up at the Long Branch. There we learn the true intention of Dan Whelan and his gang. They are there to kill Marshal Matt Dillon.

Amanda Blake as Kitty, now has the men in her saloon and will start a card game they will bring relief to the citizens of Dodge. Ms Blake's performance is top notch as she deals a game of card with her usual disdain for bandits.

With a lot of the recent shows where the regular cast just makes a cameo appearance. Amanda Blake brings the episode along with the flare of olden times. Was pleasantly surprised by this story. Good show!
