Strangler on the Train
4 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Wagon Train episode is more like a noir film than a western as several residents of a town they passed through join the Wagon Train to escape a strangler. Including town marshal Larry Pennell who thinks the killings badly reflect on his law enforcement abilities.

Never mind three stranglings take place on John McIntire's Wagon Train before the mystery is solved. Solved by the way with no help from Frank McGrath and young Michael Burns who decide to play detective. That's a lot of the comic relief in this show plus McGrath trying to imitate an itinerant entertainer played by Stanley Adams who has a magic act.

It's a good episode and the solution was rather obvious and I confess I didn't see who the perpetrator was.
