Don Barry on fire
19 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series ran out of name outlaws by the second season. This episode was about one Milt Sharp, whom I have never even heard of. Ace director William Witney had left. Franklin Adreon seemed a weak replacement. There was little reason to expect anything of "Milt Sharpe", but thanks to old Republic cowboy star Don Barry, it turned out to be terrific.

Barry's days as a kiddie hero were past and such a role may never have suited him anyway. He was simply not the knight of the sagebrush type. Rather than laid back and charming, he came across as coiled and ready to strike. Barry was, however, one of the best, and certainly the most forceful, of all the actors who reigned as B western stars. He could be very intense.

The role of the small-time outlaw Sharpe tapped into his talent. He was by turns frightening when threatening with a gun, repulsive when coming on to a captive Kristine Miller, pathetic when wounded and dripping blood, and yet somehow oddly likable.

Barry fans will find this one fascinating, and it should entertain others. His ultimate comeuppance is most amusing. A final voice-over by Jim Davis reveals what a small-timer Milt Sharpe actually was.
