His good right arm, his shooting arm
6 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Zane Grey Theater television play stars MacDonald Carey as a town sheriff who has temporarily lost the use of one arm due to a fracture and its in a cast. Unfortunately it's his right arm, his shooting arm.

When Carey has trouble with a trio of three drunk trail hands and he's overpowerd a stranger in town steps in and shoots one of them dead. You'd think Carey would be grateful to John Ericson especially since he's his younger brother, but they have different philosophies about maintaining law and order.

Before the episode is over we see a sample of both at work.

I wasn't all that crazy about this particular story since it resolves absolutely nothing. And Carey balking when Mayor Jacques Aubuchon makes Ericson his deputy was just plain stupid. The man is not 100%, not eve 50%. Carey needed Ericson and that was that.

I think you'll agree.
