Storyline

Summoned to a beleaguered Western village to drive off a desperado, Paladin meets a young Native American, who's taken a correspondence course in being a Marshal, and plans to install himself as lawman for the tiny town. Paladin is charmed by the sincerity and honesty of the seemingly naive Charley Red Dog, whose grandfather was shot for sport in the hamlet. Paladin figures they can work together, though Charley doesn't want any help, plus the town puts on an all-out blitz at high noon, to avoid a Red Dog for Marshal... Written by David Stevens

Have Red Dog, Will Travel
6 May 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Scott Marlowe plays Indian Charlie Red Dog, who's taken a correspondence course in law enforcement and has kind of appointed himself as Marshall of a small western town. Trouble is, the town, led by John Staffer ("Beverly Hillbillies" Raymond Bailey) doesn't want Charlie Red Dog to be its law and wants Paladin to get rid of him before the naive kid gets killed. Instead, Paladin backs up Charlie Red Dog, showing him how to draw, surrendering his own gun when demanded and helping him in a fight with six toughs. In the second of three appearances on the show (different characters every time) Sciott Marlowe is impressive as Charlie, and shows there's more to him than a dumb kid. He actually does have some skills, thanks to a good script. Marlowe's performance really makes this mostly comic episode work.
