JOHNNY RINGO "East is East" 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) with a "gimmick gun". Durant carries a special LeMat revolver equipped with a shotgun barrel under the six gun barrel. This episode is the 14th episode of the series.

This one starts with a stage being held up outside of Velardi. The stage driver and one passenger are killed and robbed with only Debra Paget surviving the attack. The bandits do not know that Miss Paget is still alive.

Velardi Sheriff, Don Durant and his man, Mark Goddard, are soon on the job looking for the killers. Needless to say the men want to eliminate the only witness to their crime once they discover she is alive. Miss Paget turns out to be writing a book on the west and the "vicious" people who populate the area. This does not sit well with the local folks. The woman of course gets herself in all sorts of trouble and needs to be rescued by Durant and company.

This is a rather slipshod episode with less than inspiring writing and rather poor direction. It was one of only 4 productions director Laurence Stewart worked on. And it is easy to see why he had such a short career.

On the plus side, the ravishing Debra Paget is always worth a look. The blue eyed beauty was a fixture in 1950's Technicolor adventures, westerns and historical epics. Her film work includes, BROKEN ARROW, WHITE FEATHER, ANNE OF THE INDIES, PRINCE VALIANT, THE LAST HUNT, LOVE ME TENDER and THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
