Job seeks justice in his hometown after 5 years in a Texas prison. David Job and his gang take over the scrub town, putting its kingpins and collaborators on kangaroo trial for railroading Job out, and into prison. Passersby Buz & Tod get rounded up too, with Tod assigned to act as the defense mouthpiece. As Job and local Goliath Harcourt Jr. contend over maid Marion Ross, brother Doodle Job must choose sides. Written by
A man (Ericson) gets released from prison after five years and is determined to return to the small Texas town where he was arrested and bring the real perpetrator (Kelly) to the justice via a kangaroo court that features Todd as the acting defense attorney.
This episode starts off well by terrifically capturing the atmosphere of a small and desolate town. In fact the town looks amazingly similar to Skidmore, Missouri where 20 years later a very similar true life incident occurred. Unfortunately the story starts to fizzle at the halfway point and ends with a rather limp conclusion. The script is too talky and too much emphasis is put into describing a crime that really isn't all that interesting or revealing. The story itself has too many similarities to an earlier episode entitled 'Black November'.
However it is fun to see actress Marion Ross in an early performance and talking in a twangy Texas accent.
