A disagreeable errand
27 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Michael Rennie is the guest star in this Zane Grey Theater episode as a US Marshal who is on a disagreeable errand. He's visiting the ranch of old friend Louis Jean Heydt tracking down a killer. Said killer turns out to be Richard Jaeckel, Heydt's son.

Jaeckel has shot down an Navajo chief's son whom he thought was going to steal some cattle. In the old days that was just routine, but now the Navajos are on a reservation and under the protection of the government such as it is.

This sets Rennie against the whole town as Heydt is owner of the local Ponderosa. I think some of you might see some parallels with the Kirk Douglas/Anthony Quinn classic western Last Train From Gun Hill.

Unfortunately it's not as good and the ending given how Jaeckel's character is presented is a real cop out.

Definitely one of the lesser stories from the Zane Grey Theater.
