Goofs

When Matt walks into Carvers hotel room he ask Carver why are all the shades drawn. And Carver replies; "I like sitting in the dark." However, when Matt walks further into the room the camera pans towards the window and it's obvious that the shades are clearly open and there's plenty of light coming in. See more »

Interesting concept-- an ex-lawman, sharpshooter Troy Carver is losing his eyesight while a vengeance-seeking farmer is on his trail. The opening meet-up between old friends Matt and Carver (Wilton Graf) is well handled-- (also in that scene I rediscovered what an absolutely gorgeous woman Amanda Blake was). Carver, made-up to look like Buffalo Bill, is trying to conceal his fading vision, which presents a problem since a showdown with farmer Polan (Martin Kingsley) appears inevitable. These elements generate some suspense. However, the showdown is pretty contrived, and when you think about what has to happen for the plan to work, it's not very credible. Kingsley makes for an off-beat looking farmer and handles his scenes well. Otherwise, it's a pretty routine episode with many familiar plot elements.
