Claudette Colbert still is at the top of her game.
10 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
