Art Linkletter stars in this episode as Reverend Albert Pierce that tours the west preaching the gospel. He comes into one town and has most of the town under the spell of his preaching. He even is causing problems as the local saloon when the regulars stop coming in the bar but go to hear the minister.
It happens that Rev. Pierce's son, Jimmy, arrives in the town. There are problems with the relationship as Jimmy blames his father for his mother's death in a house fire. Jimmy has been living with his aunt for most of his life and now wants to bring the man down that he believes is a killer instead of a minister. And it looks like Jimmy will get his wish.
This was an interesting tale that was enjoyable in most levels. Art Linkletter did a nice job as the preacher being accused of being a coward but his real-life son, Jack Linkletter (that played Jimmy), was as stiff as any actor ever seen. It is very obvious that Jack was not the best choice but got the gig because of his famous father. The show was still entertaining but could have been better with proper casting.
