This is the kind of episode that you're glad isn't typical of the entire DVD Season One set. It plays not a western but more like a half--hour soap opera with bickering people and not much else. Almost all of the show is centered in a bombed-out house in which four soldiers are surrounded by Apaches and try to figure out how to get out of this jam.
What most of the episode features, however, is the always-gruff Lee J. Cobb ("Capt. Andrew Wattlling") arguing with the other men, none of whom has the slightest respect for the officer, who apparently has a history of deception and cowardice.
The only interesting character in this "play" was "Quine," played by John Larch, who speaks up the most against "Wattling." An odd thing about this "Death March" is that the introduction by host Dick Powell said it's all about superstition. He gives us some interesting facts about various tribes' superstitions and what they meant. However, the actual story did not deal with that, as he said. Whatever.
