Storyline

Town banker Abb Crothers (Frank Craven) and small-town newspaper publisher Pete Martin (Edgar Buchanan) are basically friends, but are forever feuding, as neither man's views on any given subject match the other's belief. Their friendship is severely tested when Martin prints an obituary on Crothers...who is very much alive and kicking. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
