How Do You Spell 'Rewrite'
20 April 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Our wine expert (opening scene) hero is hired to return half-breed son to vengeful father for killing his fiancée, but complications ensue.

Regrettably sloppy script undercuts some good acting from Simon (father) and Hatton (old guy) and a pretty good first half. Hatton's familiar from a thousand B-Westerns where he played variations on his crusty old character here. Also, Simon does these tyrannical parts very well.

The screenplay problems unfortunately go beyond what Zsenorsock rightly points out and had me shaking my head in wonderment. In short, how does Paladin know so much about Morgan's (Simon) private life, which he demonstrates during the questioning phase of the "trial". To that point, we're given no reason to think theirs is anything beyond a cursory relationship. It wouldn't have been hard for the screenwriter to cover this base.

This is one of those episodes that Boone carries with his strongly assured presence, but is more contrived than most. I understand that the typical series of the period held back their weakest entries for season's end. This one aired unsurprisingly next to 1961's last.
