Have Torah, Will Testify
26 July 2014 | by (Bronx, NY) – See all my reviews

This fourth season opener is one of my favorite episodes of the series. It features a lovely performance by Martin Gabel as a Jewish peddler whose devout principles compel him to testify against an accused killer at any cost. He initially holds Paladin, as a "hired killer," brought in by his daughter to protect him, in contempt, but the two men develop a grudging, mutual respect. The byplay between Gabel and Boone is delightful, and the script by Shimon Wincelberg offers them rich dialogue. A quite scary Bobby Blake is an added plus. The stunning--almost laughable--way that Paladin survives an apparent shooting at the climax strains credulity, but the episode is too strong to be hurt much by it. You'll remember the fine closing dinner scene instead.
