Jack Lord and Andrew Prine are brothers in law with gold fever working an abandoned mine. The local general store owner (Broderick Crawford), who has extended them plenty of credit, becomes interested when they manage to dig out several hundred dollars worth of ore. He jumps their claim, and trouble beckons. Not much else really happens. The ending contains a minor twist. Lord, who played the most boring cop on TV a few years later, here gets to act up a storm as a giddy prospector. Unfortunately, he never made it as a movie actor. Should you decide to watch this episode, watch it for the acting, not the script. WAIT UNTIL YOU see Crawford, hugely overweight and way past his prime, putting the moves on the lovely Lisabeth Hush, who plays Lord's wife. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
