James Best and Gail Kobe, 2 August 2016
Author: kevin olzak ( from Youngstown, Ohio

"Night on a Rainbow" touches upon the dangerous subject of drugs and how wounded soldiers became addicted to them. In the case of Ted Evans (James Best, later seen in "Deathwatch"), former drummer in Johnny Yuma's outfit, he suffered terrible injuries that required drugs to ease the pain, but once the pain was gone he couldn't do without the 'medicine.' Ted's wife Carrie (Gail Kobe, later seen in "The Ballad of Danny Brown") had to choose between Ted and Johnny for a husband, weary of the struggle to wean him away from his addiction. Local druggist Roy Cale (Perry Cook, previously seen in "Angry Town") is the actual culprit, supplying the junk that keeps him from breaking the habit, even using a supply wagon as a traveling source of income. Jon Lormer has a fine sequence as a doctor, explaining the circumstances to a sympathetic Yuma (he would return for "The Legacy").
