Did You Know?


The lack of on screen credit for the actress, remaining unidentified at this writing, in the role of Frank Jeffers' girlfriend is inexplicable due to the number of scenes and lines of dialogue she has and her importance to the development of the plot. See more »

The Wife: Dead Or Alive?
19 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man hires "Josh" to find his wife. The catch is that she's dead!


Josh soon discovers his new boss has discovered his wife really isn't dead. She was buried but he finds out the coffin is empty.....so where is she? The husband, "Jolhn Garth" (Arthur Franz) thinks someone has run off with her because he got a rude welcoming from the head of the town when he came and discovered the empty grave. He suspects the bully of the town, "Frank," is hiding something (like his wife!).

Randall (Steve McQueen) suggests maybe his wife has voluntarily gone into hiding but Garth, of course, didn't want to believe that. He simply gives Josh a hundred dollar bill and asks him to accompany him back to that town to find out what's going on. Josh shrugs, as he usually does, and says okay. The fact that he just lost all his money in a poker game probably added some incentive to be employed soon.

We find out the truth, which involves a few twists near and then at the end. In the middle, Josh gets into a fight with Frank and gets beaten up.

(The good guy doesn't always win in this series, which is one reason why "Wanted:Dead Or Alive" was such a good TV program.) Mort Mills is effective as the tough town thug "Mort Mills" who isn't what he seems.
