Storyline

In the early 1890s Mr. Garrity arrives in Happiness, Arizona apparently knowing a great deal about some of the people who live there. He knows that Jensen the bartender's brother died and that Gooberman the town drunk lost his wife. Garrity also reveals that he has a very peculiar gift - he can bring back the dead. When a dog is run down by a wagon in the street he resurrects it without any difficulty. When he offers to do the same for the town's loved one's, they realize they would rather he not bring back the dearly departed, something they are quite happy to pay him for. Garrity, a charlatan if ever there was one, is glad to accept their money - though he does seem to leave something behind. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Introducing Mr. Jared Garrity, a gentleman of commerce, who in the latter half of the nineteenth century plied his trade in the wild and wooly hinterlands of the American West. And Mr. Garrity, if one can believe him, is a resurrecter of the dead - which, on the face of it, certainly sounds like the bull is off the nickel. But to the scoffers amongst you, and you ladies and gentlemen from Missouri, don't laugh this one off entirely, at least until you've seen a sample of Mr. ...

Simple and Memorable Classic Ghost Story
26 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mr. Garrity, a shyster in a plaid suit, shows up in a little western town that has a deserved reputation for violence. Boot Hill contains 128 bodies, most of whom were gunned down or the products of gun play of some kind. The con man goes to the saloon and after a bit of small talk, tells the bartender that his profession is that of one who raises people from the dead. The sheriff and some of the local yokels come to the bar to meet this guy. After a bit of laughter and some accusations, a noise is heard outside. A dog has been killed by a wagon, even though he has no marks on his body. Mr. Garrity says he will resurrect the dog but forces everyone to turn their backs. Lo and behold, the dog leaps to life and takes off like a shot, down the Main Street, and out of town. People are aghast. Mr. Garrity tells the townspeople that he intends to release all the souls in the graveyard that night. At first they are overjoyed by the prospect. After he goes to do his duty, he comes back to a group of very worried people. The first of the undead comes walking through the fog and we begin to hear that the survivors aren't too happy with the thought of the dear departed rejoining them. You guessed it. They want Garrity to send them back. Of course, there is quite a fee for this and they are more than willing to pay. As is usually the case, the story doesn't end there and that's why one needs to hang on till the end. This is one of the more entertaining episodes, with Serling's tongue planted firmly in his cheek.
