Storyline

The Secret Service receives a letter from a man named Arthur Cole, resident of a town called New Athens, claiming knowledge of a matter so important he can only reveal it face to face. West and Gordon are sent to investigate. They discover the citizens of New Athens are fleeing town due to the arrival of a band of cut-throat outlaws. Attempting to meet with Cole, West and Gordon find their potential informant murdered. Rescuing mayor John Cassidy from an altercation with the outlaws, West and Gordon learn a recent arrival in town, Mike Trayne, was once a rich, influential citizen of New Athens. The mayor believes the outlaws are Trayne's method of exacting revenge on the town that sent Trayne to jail three years before. West and Gordon are now the town's only hope of survival.

Disappointing
13 December 2012 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- TNOT Cut-Throats, 1967, West and Gordon see through a revenge plot, discovering it's a ploy to rob a town's main bank.

*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Jackie Coogan, Bradford Dillman, Walter Burke.

*Theme- Revenge is a powerful tonic if left unchecked.

*Trivia/location/goofs- Air date 11-17-67. Takes place in New Athens, Wyoming. Mr. Conrad's short stature/height for a leading man (5'7") was compensated for with shoe 'lifts' in his boots, casting short stunt people, and short leading ladies. In fact his show was known for needing so many short stature love-interest roles for women among females actresses, it became a staple for actresses in Hollywood.

*Emotion- I was entertained but not impressed by the 'revenge drama on a small town' plot line. It was done too many times in season three. And it always puts a extremely high bar on the guest star lead performances.....many time they fail to deliver enough to balance with Conrad and Martin. I have seen Dillman deliver better work in other TV series. Jackie Coogan/Uncle Fester was fun here. I would like to suggest another Jackie Coogan silent film with Charlie Chaplin, 'The Kid' and see his extensive acting 'chops'. He was more than a comedic actor. Coogan's bio on IMDb LINK: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001067/bio Also, there's not enough dire drama for a viewer to care much when compared to other episodes of W3. Many times the shows like this are disappointing. I thought this one was, unfortunately.
