Quotes

Narrator: Ranger Hoby Gilman had been trailing the Marple Brothers for three weeks. They were wanted for robbery and murder in Tahoka. Ranger Gilman and his partner, Sam Talbot had tracked them from La Mesa, the Big Spring, to Sterling City.

So many not credited!

First of all, I will say that this is a good first episode. The story is good, and amazingly takes place in a church. In the end, no women or children die, though there were several of them in the church.

I was amazed at how many people SHOULD have been credited, but weren't. For example, we have a Sheriff, doctor, and bartender all with substantial speaking parts, yet without credit. Then we have the gunman on the roof who I don't think spoke, but he certainly played a big part in the episode. Several of the townspeople in the saloon spoke, but went uncredited...I'm not sure what the reason for this was, but I think they all deserved to be recognized.

Of course, I love Robert Culp and was very sad to hear of his passing, so I was glad to see that he too was the hero and got to lead James Best off to the slammer...

Total dead: five
