Hotel de Paree: "Sundance and the Blood Money" 1960

Hotel de Paree was a western series that ran between 1959 and 1960. The series ran for 32 episodes and starred, Earl Holliman, Jeanette Nolan, Judi Meredith and Strother Martin. Headliner Holliman plays a gunslinger named "Sundance", who is just out of prison and wants to turn over a new leaf. He ends up in Georgetown, Colorado, where he buys into a small hotel ran by Nolan and Meredith. Though he wants to avoid gun play, it has a way of creeping up on the man.

In this episode, the 12th of the series, a man, Russ Conway, brings in a man wanted for the murder of a couple of local miners. There is a 3,000 dollar reward on the man, Ken Becker. Since there is no jail in town, the man is tied up and tossed into the Hotel de Paree cellar. (For the fee of 10 dollars a day)The Federal Marshall is due in a couple of days to pick up Becker.

At the hotel, the owners, Holliman and Jeanette Nolan are having trouble with a local kid. The young boy, Darryl Richard is always thieving food from the hotel kitchen. It seems that the boy is only trying to get food for his feeling poorly mother.

Now the viewer finds out that Conway and Becker are really partners. Once Conway gets the cash reward, he breaks Becker out and they hot foot it for the hills. Holliman spots the play and tries to stop them. Conway pulls his pistol and starts blasting at Holliman, he misses, but hits the young boy, Richard. Besides seriously wounding the boy, Conway has stolen Holliman's fine horse.

Holliman quickly straps on his iron and saddles up to give chase. Joining him is local general store owner, Strother Martin. The two track Conway and Becker out into the hill country. They trail the men to a pass that looks like a perfect spot for an ambush. Holliman does not like the look of the place so he and Martin ride around. And right he is as Conway and Becker were perched on the high ground looking for any possible pursuit.

Holliman and Martin now set up their own ambush further up the trail and wait. When Conway and Becker ride up they call on the pair to surrender. Needless to say they do not, and iron is pulled and used. Conway and Becker are soon on their way back to town draped over their saddles.

This is an entertaining episode that was directed by future big screen man, Andrew V. McLaglen.

Look close and you will spot former big time silent star, Snub Pollard in a small bit. Pollard was on screen from 1915 to 1962. After the silent era he moved into character roles and appeared in close to 700 films and television episodes.
