YANCY DERRINGER "The Belle from Boston" 1958

This 1958-59 series is about a card sharp, who returns home to New Orleans three years after the end of the Civil War. The man, Jock Mahoney, finds the city full of Northern carpet bagging types. He is secretly put to work as an undercover man by the city commissioner, Kevin Hagen. Mahoney is to keep Hagen advised on the various low-life types running wild in the city. He does this with the help of his Pawnee bodyguard, X. Brands. The series ran for a total of 34 episodes.

In this episode, the sixth of the series, we have Yancy Derringer, (Jock Mahoney) being asked to keep an eye on New Orleans' City commissioner's (Kevin Hagen) sister. The sister, Noreen Nash, has had her life threatened by local gang boss, Leo Gordon. Gordon has sworn to get even with Hagen because Hagen had his brother strung up for murder.

Gordon has already made several attempts at Hagen's life. Gordon now figures that Miss Nash, visiting from Boston might be an easier target. Nash however wants to be shown the town and needs protection. Hagen puts his pal, Mahoney and his Pawnee, X Brands on the case. Mahoney brings in extra help with gambling house owner, Frances Bergen.

Mahoney and company are kept busy as thug Gordon has set half a dozen or so plans in motion. It is more by good luck than skill that Mahoney and group keep Miss Nash alive. The last attempt on Nash goes badly for Gordon as he gets his hair combed with the butt end of a sawed off shotgun. Miss Nash is sent off on the first boat heading out of New Orleans.

This is a brisk episode, with plenty of violence and several good lines. Six episodes in and all have been entertaining.
