The twist at the ending added much to this story.
31 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a rather unique western tale, the famous Major Lee Henry Carter has a memorial built in his honor due to the many battles against the Indians that he fought. They even have his coffin in a crypt on the grounds of the memorial. But during one evening a group of men, lead by Stacey Gibbs, steals the coffin and has it sent out west. The men are holding the body for ransom and will not release the coffin until the Widow Carter pays the money.

It just so happens that Simon and Davey are making a run on the stagecoach. They do not have any passengers but happen to being carrying a coffin that is set to go to their next stop. Unaware of the theft, the two set off for the next town. Along the way they run into a man, Gibbs, that is walking on the road. They pick him up only to be held at gun point and taken as prisoners until Gibbs and his men are paid the ransom. Simon and Davey believe they will be killed as soon as the money is collected.

There is much more to this story than what is obvious. A unique twist is in the plot that will make the story even more enjoyable for the viewers. It seems that everything and everyone are not exactly as they appear. Right down from the bandit Gibbs to the Widow Carter there is more than meets the eye to most. The show did leave some good talent untouched as two great actors, Jack Elm and Richard Devon, had little to add to the story and was only used a background for nearly all of the show. There was a few weak moments in the script, especially the questions and speech by the young Davey, but overall still managed to keep enough interest for a nice watch. The twist to the plot added much to this tale.
