Dick Powell Gets Better With Age
2 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Host Dick Powelll guest-stars on his show, a story about rustlers, hot tempers and an age-old family feud.

It was a pleasure to watch Dick Powell act. I swear, that guy got better and better as he got older. His film-noir roles in the mid '50s-to early '50s were terrific, and he's great here in this Zane Grey episode.

The story is a bit of a cliché, one I've seen in a number of old westerns on film and on TV: the smart, non-violent cowboy forced into a fight with a thug who egg him on. Powell out-talks the man, with some great dialog, until he has little choice but to have a "Gunsmoke"-like showdown in the street.

Ainslie Pryor does an effective job playing the punk "Kimball Hatton." You want to grab a gun and shoot the bully yourself!

Before the episode, Powell provides us with another entertaining prelude, humorously giving us the whys and hows why branding steers needed to take place and how rustlers countered. It's all very interesting and Dick says it with a few funny lines. Do you remember how good Alfred Hitchcock was before his TV show? Well, Powell is similar.
