Entertaining episode.
19 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a rather odd episode for a Zane Grey show, the program begins outside a saloon where a gunfight takes place and the only thing we know is that one of the gunmen was killed. The next scene takes us to another saloon where a man (Tex Ritter) is singing about a dead outlaw named Dan Case, when in walks a man that appears to be the same person that was killed at the beginning of the show. Strange things are afoot in the western town.

With the song playing throughout the episode, it is clear that the man in the saloon is suppose to be the person, Dan Case, that was killed in the gunfight. And as the song verse goes 'looking for his soul' as he lives in this town for a day, always looking at the clock, and meets a number of people in town that includes two different type of women and also a young buck that challenges the mysterious man to a gunfight. We get the feeling that we may see Dan Case die twice in one episode. But there is a twist to this tale.

For a unique episode for the series, the show turned out to be a interesting story that kept the viewer on the end of their seat to the very end. With good acting and a exciting story, the show was one of the better episode we have seen this season. Good watch.
