Fairly Good Early Episode
8 February 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Paladin is hired to protect accused man (Stone) from town lynch mob and deliver him to trial.

Lynch mobs have built-in tension. This one's no exception, as we wonder how just three men-- the man in black, the sheriff and a deputy,-- hope to fend off an angry mob, especially one led by the hulking Burt Nelson. At the same time, for eye candy, there's the gorgeous Angie Dickinson showing she's an up & comer as businessman Bouchey's lynch-minded daughter. Also, catch the versatile Strother Martin, this time as a nerdy lawyer instead of the slyly menacing roles he specialized in.

It's a good episode that shows some imagination. I just wonder why lynch mobs always seem to forget that jails have a back as well as a front. Also, we see TV conventions in action in that last softening scene that unfortunately blunts the episode's edge. Still and all, I wonder what Paladin has in that mysterious black bag.
