James Doohan and Leonard Ontkean
10 November 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Scapegoat" is one of the better episodes, as a rough winter has devastated the Tuscarawas of Chief Thunder Sky (Earl Grey, last of two), leaving them without both food and animals for fur trapping. Hawkeye believes that the Winslow trading post will be glad to offer credit in exchange for a later payment once the tribe gets back on its feet. Complications arise when the Chief's son, Running Deer (Jonathan White, last of two), is caught trying to steal provisions at the post, just after a pistol shot rings out, the owner felled by the fatal bullet. Running Deer proclaims his innocence, despite both Hawkeye and the widow Winslow (Vita Linder, first of two) seeing no one else except for the accused. Suspicion is aroused by Winslow's partner, Dana Bennett (Leonard Ontkean, third of five), who gins up townsman Harris (James Doohan, first of two) into a lynching mood, unwilling to wait for the arrival of Judge Holmes (Rex Devlin, first of two) to preside over the subsequent trial. Hawkeye is certain of Running Deer's innocence once the jailer (Hugh Watson, first of four) gets paid to set the Indian free. Again, little is required of Lon Chaney's Chingachgook apart from his physicality, but the murder trial makes it an unusual entry worth watching. Vita Linder was the sister of Cec Linder (Felix Leiter in "Goldfinger," who likewise appeared twice on the show), while native Canadian James Doohan, a veteran of radio long before STAR TREK, was still relatively new to television, not quite a dozen credits at this time, appearing (with Rex Devlin) in the very next episode, "Way Station."
