This is something different, a story with a narration through it, a story has seen through the eyes of a man named "Cass Kendall" who is played by the famous actor Jack Lemmon.
Lemmon was 32 years old at the time and hadn't reached the fame he would in a short time, but he was still a terrific actor and got good recognition for his role as "Ensign Pulver" in "Mister Roberts," prior to doing this TV episode.
Lemmon had a believable role in here with very credible dialog, which had a touch of humor, too. For awhile, it was hard to figure out if "Kendall" was a good guy or a bad guy. Soon, it becomes apparent.....or does it? Lemmon keeps you guessing.
Providing the Oscar-winning actor some able assistance is Frank Ferguson as "Mayor T.J. Barnett." Ferguson is a name you may not know, but you sure know his face if you're old enough to have watched a lot of TV shows in the '50s and '60s. Nan Leslie plays the mayor's daughter and she, too, acted in many TV westerns. James Best has a short role as "Pike" and is very effective.
