Trivia

$10,000 in 1873 had the same general purchasing power as $185,610 in 2008, although exact comparisons are somewhat difficult due to the relative paucity of manufactured goods that were available for purchase at that time. See more »

Matt knew something was amiss
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is rather a sad tale about a widow that is used for the sole purpose of someone wanting to get rich. And the only victim of the entire story is a woman that should expect more than life has to offer.

It begins in a odd manner as Marshal Dillon has information that Zack Morton held up the express office. When Matt confront Zack it comes down to a face off which results in Zack Morton's demise. However the money from the robbery has not be recovered and some people, including a dandy man from St. Joe named Leach Fields, believes that Ada Morton knows the whereabouts of the stolen money. When Fields suddenly marries the widow Ada, Matt gets suspicious. It will be when Doc Adams is treated unkindly that Matt knows something is amiss.

Another example of how women were treated in the earlier west. Even from the beginning the viewer knew how this story would progress yet still got an entertaining show out of the lot. Nothing really remarkable but a nice show to watch.
