Will Roger's gun...
11 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ed Murdock is a rodeo star appearing at Madison Square Garden. When the cinch strap on his saddle is cut almost all the way through, Ed is sure that fellow rodeo performer, Bud Lee, did it. Ed calls Diamond to investigate and to act as his bodyguard. At a poker game later that evening, he and Bud have a round of fisticuffs. Bud flaunts a gun he says was given to him by Will Rogers for good luck. Later that evening while Ed and his wife are out taking a walk, an unknown assailant shoots and kills Ed. Yep - he was shot with Will Rogers' gun. The entire cast in this episode was first rate especially Lee Van Cleef as Ed Murdoch. It was cool seeing Dan Blocker as poker player and ex-rodeo performer Cloudy Sims. David Janssen is good as Diamond but the plot to this episode was pretty thin and the culprit was easy to figure out.
