James K. Best and Frank Silvera
14 April 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Deathwatch" begins with a thirsting Johnny Yuma taking a drink from the canteen of a lone shepherd (James K. Best), who promptly captures him to bait a trio of Mexican bandits led by Cota (Frank Silvera), who promises them both one hour to live before dawn. Johnny learns that the shepherd was a Confederate soldier hailing from Virginia, son of a heroic father, who believes that because he cracked after being captured and whipped by union soldiers that he is a coward deserving to die with dignity in such a desolate location far from home. Johnny is able to convince him that each soldier served a different purpose during the war, depending on strengths or weaknesses, and that many lives were no doubt saved by his efforts. James K. Best was coming off a starring role in 1959's "The Killer Shrews," opposite producer Ken Curtis, while Frank Silvera had previously appeared on THRILLER ("The Guilty Men"), going on to do THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR's memorable "The Life Work of Juan Diaz."
