Have Tenderfoot, Will Escort
30 March 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Paladin meets British James Brunswick (Tom Hellmore) at his hotel in San Francisco and offers to provide him safe escort to the ranch he's inherited in Montana. There Brunswick becomes the target of a series of dumb practical jokes by the local shopkeeper N.G. (Murvyn Vye) that almost leads to the outbreak of an Indian war.

There's a lot of comic touches in this "fish out of water" episode, but it turns serious when Brunswick stands up to Indian Chief Blackfoot Harry (Ted de Corsia) and proves his bravery. Paladin seems to like Brunswick a good deal and is amused by his naivety. There's a great moment when Brunswick arrives in town looking like he just got off the set of "Gunga Din" or "Lives of the Bengal Lancers" rather than a western. Hellmore is very good at the role, as is former Miss Georgia Alix Talton, who plays Felicia, Brunswick's cousin and co-owner of the ranch.

But despite all the chemistry, the script fails them. N.G. is written a little to over the top (and performed that way) and his idea of a practical joke with the Indians faking being on the warpath is not very funny at all. The scene where Brunswick does stand up to the chief is a good one however.

Apparently this episode was a little short on time, because just when you think its over there's an additional pointless scene back in San Francisco that adds nothing to the story as Paladin gloms on to the latest attractive woman at the hotel. Also, when Harry is shot, paladin mentions the wound is "high in the chest". But when we see him later, Harry has his ARM in a sling, implying he was hit in the arm.
