Nobody is innocent in this entertaining tale.
23 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

In this star-studded episode, we have Jeff Anderson going home on leave from the Union Army and making his way back to his home town and to his wife. Upon arriving at home, Jeff finds Sheriff Bates exiting his house. They have found his wife, Barbara, dead from a gunshot wound. Jeff wants to know why someone would kill such a beautiful and faithful woman. It is left to the Sheriff to tell Jeff that Barbara may have been playing the field while Jeff was gone. And even tells him the names of Frank Simmons and Cleve Roarke that may have had a fling with Barbara.

Jeff is bound to find out who killed his wife. He goes to investigate which person may have wanted Barbara dead. Along the way Jeff hears things that will turn his stomach. What he finds out was that Barbara was lonely and not a faithful wife- something that he can not take.

This was actually a very interesting tale. It is one of those 'you-must-see' to find out how the ending is revealed - and a worthy finale indeed. The ending makes the viewer feel inside for the entire situation where no one was innocent. A very entertaining story.

You also have some nice actors making an appearance. Mary Astor, Mala Powers, Tom Tully and Richard Anderson make their character come to life which makes the viewer feel part of the show. An episode that needs to be watched to enjoy.
