Second season opener stars Lon Chaney
4 May 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Case of Joe Slate" was the second season opener, as Herbert J. Maris (Macdonald Carey) and Lt. John Weston (John Doucette) are set for a weekend getaway in the country, only to arrive at the hotel to find their fishing guide, Joe Slate (Larry Hudson), arrested for shooting his wayward wife Esther (Wendy Wilde). Sheriff Jeremy Davies (Lon Chaney) insists he has at least a clear case of manslaughter, but since Esther was known to gravitate to any man willing to indulge her, there's room for other suspects. Saloon owner Noah Hawkins (Don Ross) and wife Mary (Barbara Collentine) alibi each other, while the Sheriff's own nephew, lodge desk clerk Frank Davies (Steve Terrell), refutes anything spouted at the local gas station by attendant Al Shandley (Moody Blanchard). Meanwhile, the dogged Sheriff never allows Maris out of his sight, setting up the final bullet riddled showdown at Shandley's gas station. Steve Terrell was best remembered for his 1957 starring vehicle "Invasion of the Saucer Men," while veteran Lon Chaney performs a role very similar to the suspicious Sheriff he'd already played a year earlier on Steve McQueen's Western series WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE, in "The Empty Cell."
