Robert Bloch's Western THRILLER
20 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Robert Bloch scripts this unusual black comedy set in the Old West, featuring Henry Jones (from "The Weird Tailor") as an undertaker who murders his wife then moves elsewhere to court a new bride who turns out to be both old and fat (Reta Shaw). He covers his occupation by proclaiming himself a 'Southern planter,' (from St. Louis?) but is swiftly dismissed by his fiancée's brother (Philip Ober) and sister-in-law (Jocelyn Brando, previously seen in "Worse Than Murder"). Figuring to conquer his penniless existence by eloping, he soon learns that the brother holds all the purse strings, now stuck in the same situation with his new wife as the old one. Edgar Buchanan steals it as Doc O'Connor, a wily quack with a reputation for administering poison, whom Jones engages to get rid of 'an old nag.' Also featuring Western veteran Jim Davis as the local marshal, enjoying his share of amusement. Like Bloch's earlier "A Good Imagination," a final twist denies our hero the opportunity to enjoy his short-lived good fortune. A little jewel among the final round of THRILLERs.
