Murder on the trail, 18 September 2006
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

There's been a murder done on the Wagon Train going west and being so far away from regular criminal justice machinery Ward Bond as wagonmaster has to improvise.

Fortunately he's got a pair of legal minds to help. A former British barrister in Henry Daniell and a retired professor of law in Henry Hull. With Bond as the judge, Daniell becomes prosecutor and Hull who's not been in a courtroom too much takes on the defense of the accused party.

The climax of the first half of the two part show is when the members of the Wagon Train are incited into a lynch mob. I remember to this day that Henrry Daniell and Henry Hull stood with rifles ready to defend both the prisoner and the anglo-saxon legal system they've devoted their lives to. One of the few times you ever see Henry Daniell in a good light.
