Have Toad, Will Water
9 May 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Only a couple of episodes after his appearance as a dying General, David White tries to show his range as Webster, a dirt farmer with three daughters who appears to have run across some ancient Indian ruins on his land. Interested in the ruins, Paladin goes to investigate only to find Webster denying everything. The other locals, led by the suspicious Doris (Lorna Thayer) suspect there's gold on Webster's land. When he shows up in town with a small statuette that he tries to sell to get money for dynamite, they're sure of it. Paldin tries to create peace while discovering the real secret of the ruins.

White does another nice pre-Larry Tate job as the farmer, but somehow I still think he's miscast. He seems too eastern and sophisticated to be a dirt farmer. But he does what he can with the role. Lorna Thayer is pretty much over the top throughout the whole episode and can be a bit grating. Her turn as Webster's wife at the end of the episode seems unconvincing. Movie fans may remember her as the waitress ten years later in "Five Easy Pieces".

Boone has a nice bit the way he reacts to the whiskey he has to share with Doris, and despite this episodes flaws, I found it to be fairly enjoyable.
