In the tradition of "High Noon"
5 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Gary Cooper classic "High Noon" served as a model for TV westerns scripting the hero to take a lonely stand against the forces of evil. "Siege" is a fine example of the sub-genre and a typically accomplished episode from season two. McClure plays the reluctant hero peerlessly, but the solid, undervalued Ron Hayes has the Cooperish role of the town marshal who risks losing his life and his wife, played by willowy former "Father Knows Best" ingénue Elinor Donahue. Joseph Campanella drips oily menace as the head bandido. Agonizingly tense buildup to elaborately staged final shootout is a tribute to the acumen of production team.
