Offbeat
23 December 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

I certainly didn't see the central twist coming in this imaginative Gene Roddenberry screenplay. After five years of relentless script demands, I'm surprised production was able to come up with an offbeat premise. The way the story is filmed and the way events conspire against our erstwhile Paladin suggest a frontier film noir, of all things.

Lon Caney's role is a brief, odd one and may have been a favor to a veteran actor then on the alcoholic downgrade. He was always good at projecting pathos despite the bulk, which he does here in a sympathetic role. Too bad about the ending, at least in my view. Developments seem hurried and not very convincing, as if production had to do a quick wrap-up. Nonetheless, the half-hour is occasionally riveting and certainly worth catching up with.
