Rosemary Blake: Look, Barney, I've had enough. I can't go on like this anymore. I want to start over again - a new town, new faces... a new me.

JOHNNY RINGO "Love Affair" 1959

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 11th episode of the series.

The saloon in Velardi gets a new singer, Gloria DeHaven and the town Deputy, Mark Goddard falls hard for her. DeHaven is a "been around the block" type who is surprised by the affection shown by Goddard. The two are soon an item and go out riding and such.

DeHaven tells Goddard that she is not what she appears to be. There is a past that she would rather not discuss. Goddard could care less and pushes to get hitched. Of course DeHaven's past now shows up in the form of gunslinger, Gerald Mohr. Mohr is less than pleased with his former girl, Miss DeHaven. DeHaven had put a bullet in him a while back when she had decided to leave him. It seems Mohr was not the least adverse to the laying on of fists and such when he felt like it.

He has tracked DeHaven to Velardi and intends on a little payback. Needless to say this sets up for a fight between Mohr and her new beau, Goddard. Mohr gets the drop on the young Goddard and is about to kill the man when DeHaven steps in. Mohr plugs DeHaven for her troubles. He then beats the feet but is spotted by Sheriff Durant. There is a less than friendly exchange of heavy metal with Mohr getting an overdose. Miss DeHaven of course dies in Goddard's arms.

Actor turned director Don Taylor handles the action with help from veteran cinematographer, Carl Guthrie.
