A Somewhat Honorable Gun Salesman

Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States
25 September 2007

King Donovan isn't a name that is familiar, but his face and voice certainly are as you would discover watching this second-season episode. He plays a nerdy-looking seller of guns to goes to find a killer to whom he had sold a bad gun. Being an honest businessmen (except he didn't care who he sold guns to), he wanted to get the defective gun back and exchange it with a dependable one. He didn't care if it was risky. It was just good business, and the right thing to do.

Josh Randall enters the picture accidentally. After losing a bet to the quick draw "Mr. Appleby" (Donovan), Randall has to accompany the gun salesman to the killer's hideout. "Mr. Appleby" wasn't dumb; he knew he could use some help because the man he was going to see had a very bad reputation.

Playing the villain, by the way, is another familiar face from 1950s and 1960s television: Harry Bellaver, who starred on "Naked City." Here, Harry plays "Curley Bill."

Despite the interesting actors, not much happens in this episode until the final few minutes. It's not boring but it's certainly not edge-of-your-seat stuff, either. It was a "so-so" episode.
