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

Goofs

When Conny Miller first enters the saloon, and it shows him entering from the inside, you can plainly see a set wall directly behind him, instead of what should be the open space of the street. See more »

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.

A Classic Ghost Story
24 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whenever I see a Lee Marvin Western, I think of Kid Schilline in Cat Ballou. Here he plays a guy who has been collecting a paycheck for supposedly chasing a gunslinger. Because of his ineffectiveness, the townspeople take matters into their own hands and just shoot the guy down. Marvin shows up after the fact and is challenged by a wimpy, guitar playing kid. He is then peer pressured into going to the grave of the dead guy because the man had made charges of cowardice against him. Thrown into the mix is an Ophelia-like sister of the dead man who also taunts Marvin. The story is resolved in the cemetery. It's an atmospheric tale, done pretty well, but covering no new ground.
