More promiscuous shooting
1 February 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I confess that I have to agree with the other reviewer who said it was a bit much to expect Ben Cartwright to take in young David Macklin after he had shot down his father who was nothing but a drunken lout and was shooting in the words of Tom Destry rather promiscuously.

David Macklin comes in by stagecoach from Boston and we never really hear about his mother or who was taking care of him there. All he does is arrive just in time for the funeral and to learn that Lorne Greene is the one who did the deed.

Lee Van Cleef as a gunman and Jan Sterling as a saloon girl each try to influence the kid. Ray Teal paroles young Macklin to the care of Lorne Greene even after Macklin tries to kill him at the funeral. Because Greene asks him for it.

In real life those three sons would have inherited a large chunk of Nevada real estate sooner or later.
