Episode starts off in promising fashionlonely, rich, old Leadhead (great name) is befriended by gorgeous French entertainer (Milan). Captivated, he leaves her his fortune in a will and then obligingly drops dead. Now the question ariseswas she playing the old man for a sucker. Is she really a gold-digging opportunist who sees a great opportunity. She certainly seems honest, besides Paladin apparently trusts her. Still, the suspicion is unavoidable.
I wish the script had developed this aspect and saved a disclosure till the end. That would have generated real interest. Instead, the screenplay veers off in a different, more hackneyed direction that includes a poorly staged shoot-out in LA's favorite cheap location, Bronson Canyon. At least, the entry is a payday for a lot of veteran actors, especially Earle Hodgins (Leadhead) whose amusing opening scene with Boone is a little gem of unspoken affection. Still, the entry strikes me as a missed opportunity for something more memorable.
