A newly appointed schoolteacher refuses to cave in to the demands of a gunman that he leave town. But he can't convince his wife of the importance of not backing down, even though the gunman has vowed to face him in a showdown if he doesn't leave, and the teacher has not fired a gun since he was in the war. Written by
Claudette Colbert still is at the top of her game.
Jim Bradford (Jeff Morrow) and his wife Lucy (Claudette Colbert) have moved out west and Jeff gets a job as the new school teacher. But before he even takes his position, a gunman named Burke takes task with a Yankee coming out west and teaching kids. He tells Jim to leave town or face a shootout. Jim has not even held a gun in years but refuses to leave.
Jim's wife, Lucy, tries to talk Jim into leaving. She also calls upon the Sheriff to put a stop to the fight, to no avail. Now Lucy is running around the entire town looking for help. But with time approaching Jim straps on a gun.
A good story that held the attention of the viewer the entire time. Nice to see the great actress Claudette Colbert on the small screen giving a heart-felt performance. The acting may have been over-the-top for the series but as a movie and theater actress, she puts all into a performance. A wonderful script with a wonderful cast.
