JOHNNY RINGO "Black Harvest" 1960

JOHNNY RINGO was a western series that ran for 38 episodes during 1959-60. The series starred Don Durant as the title character with Karen Sharpe, Mark Goddard and Terence De Marney as series regulars. The series follows Durant, (Ringo) a former gunfighter who decides to go straight. He becomes the Sheriff in the small town of Velardi in the Arizona Territory. The series was one of several (Rifleman, Wanted Dead or Alive, Shotgun Slade etc) with a "gimmick gun". Durant carries a special LeMat revolver equipped with a shotgun barrel under the six gun barrel.

This episode is the 27th episode of the series.

Sheriff Durant is called over to the general store and told about some possible trouble. A woman, Anita Corsault, and her much older husband, Royal Dano were in to pick up some goods. The woman had tried to pass the clerk, Billy McLean a note. The husband, Dano had grabbed said note and pushed the woman outside. McLean tells Durant that the woman looked terrified.

Shortly after this, a rider less horse wanders into town. The livery stable had sold the horse to a man 10 days before. A check of the hotel turns up some more odd things. A man had registered 10 days before, unpacked his clothes and disappeared that night.

Durant rides out to the Dano place to have a look around. The woman turns out to be mute and cannot answer any questions. Dano now pulls out a shotgun and tells the Sheriff to get off, and stay off his ranch.

Needless to say Durant knows something is amiss. He rides off but circles back on foot for a look around the place. He finds a man, William Phipps, locked up in a room in the barn. Phipps turns out to be the woman's brother. Dano is a madman who is keeping her against her will. Dano believes that she is his former wife who had run off on him. Phipps had tracked down his sister to the ranch but was captured by Dano and locked up.

Things go downhill rapidly as Dano shows with his shotgun. He relieves Durant of his gun and locks him in the room with Phipps. Durant though still has his gun-belt. He uses the power from several rounds to bust open the door and go after Dano.

Dano ends up blowing himself to kingdom come when he misthrows a stick of dynamite.

This is not the most well thought out episode story wise. But, having said that, I must admit I always enjoy seeing Royal Dano in pretty well anything.
