"Meeting a Womanly Woman with an Unwomanly Mind is a Very Stimulating Thing"
19 November 2016 | by (Crystal Palace) – See all my reviews

I've never seen the rest of this series, so I have no way of knowing how typical of it the bizarre deadpan black comedy of Frank R. Pierson & Whitfield Cook's script for this episode is.

Paladin's clients this week are Charles and Charity Trevington, a patrician brother and sister from England unperturbed by the death at the point of an arrow of their cousin while on a party hunting buffalo. Charles (played by Patric Knowles) nonchalantly uses the word "wog" half a dozen times to describe the local Indians; while his drawling-voiced sister Charity has a servant girl who has had her tongue cut out in Arabia, is given to comments like "Cruelty can be a form of refinement, you know", and has a library that includes 'A Short History of the Borgias', 'The Women Behind Napoleon', 'The Care and Cleaning of Guns', 'Poisonous Mushrooms' and 'Strange Tortures of Southeast Arabia'.

Valerie French is deliciously dark and brittle as the wholly inappropriately named Charity; and presumably it's just a remarkable coincidence how strongly the whole situation anticipates Edward Dmytryk's 'Shalako' (1968), in which the late Ms French also appeared.
