Riding the plains on assignment, Paladin's taken prisoner by a rancher and his hands, pursuing the man in black who romanced, then murdered his much younger wife. 2 other passersby, also traveling from the direction of the spread are seized too: a brash cowboy, and a very proper salesman of rifles. All profess innocence, so the wealthy rancher pits the prisoners against each other - because confession or not there'll be lynching at dawn. Paladin is skeptical of everybody.

Guessing Game
12 September 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Paladin is waylaid by goateed aristocrat Strome and his henchmen. Seems someone shot his wife, and Strome is sure it was one of the three men he's waylaid. The three includes handsome balladeer Broderick and distinguished gentleman Broderick. Question is which of the two- we know it's not Paladin-- is the guilty party. Strome plans to hang the guilty one, so what is Paladin to do.

If you can get past the rather implausible junctures in the story, it's a fun guessing game. Movie vet Kent Smith is excellent as the grim-faced Strome, while Boone is his usual commanding self. The ending is a little opaque, but maybe that's just me.
