Storyline

Lawman Conny Miller rides into a small dusty town not long after the townsfolk have gunned down the man he's been tracking for four months. He feels like he's wasted that four months and someone bets him $20 he hasn't the nerve to visit the dead man's grave. He takes that bet and has little difficulty going to the grave. Leaving it however proves to be another matter however. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Normally, the old man would be correct: this would be the end of the story. We've had the traditional shoot-out on the street and the badman will soon be dead. But some men of legend and folk tale have been known to continue having their way even after death. The outlaw and killer Pinto Sykes was such a person, and shortly we'll see how he introduces the town, and a man named Conny Miller in particular, to the Twilight Zone.

All Star Cast* On This Twilight Zone episode
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we have , Lee Marvin, William Challee, Strother Martin , Lee Van Cleef, James Best & Stafford Repp...this may be one of the most illustrious of Hollywood's elite ever assembled on any of the Twilight Zone original TV episodes. William Challee always did have a dead on perfect Walter Houston, his imitation as seen in the first 7 minutes of this episode as a mirror image of old Walter (think Treasure of Sierra Madre & John Houston's Father) has to be what originally caught my eye as I have until now never seen this one. Marvin is, as always the somber and heavy protagonist as the over compensating mercenary / Bounty Hunter, even if his character seems to be the "good guy". This one is a very intense, well directed 30 minute "Western" with that "Serling Twist". It is now my favorite, without question TZ. Mark it down as one of the top ten all time Classic Twilight Zone's.
