Madelyn Rhue daughter of oilman Charles Bickford brings in Checkmate to prevent her father's killing. Bickford most reluctantly accepts their help as he's a rough guy and used to taking care of himself. As he says oil is a rough business and one makes a lot of enemies along the way. He has a lot of people looking to kill him, most of all an ex-partner whom he brushed aside after a big strike played by Robert Wilke. His kids, Rhue and John Lupton aren't crazy about the old man either.

A few more suspects might have made this episode a bit better. Not like a Perry Mason story where the greatest strength of the series was the number of suspects and you had to figure out who with a lot of possibilities.

Still Bickford is his usual rugged self and that's always good.
