On the Tame Side
31 May 2013 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Busty blonde Dolly arrives in Dodge. Turns out she's an old flame of Matt's. So naturally, she looks him up, but turns out it's not just for old time's sake. Instead she wants Matt to kill her husband, Rad, who, she says, has beaten her and run off with another woman with whom he now homesteads in the Dodge area. Matt's a little put off by her request, while Kitty plain doesn't trust her, but maybe that's because Kitty sees her as a rival for Matt's affections. So what's Matt to do for old time's sake.

Rather tame episode. Maxwell (Dolly) looks good but is a little short in the acting department. Entry is helped by Chester's awkward attempts to ingratiate himself with Dolly, which amount to a real hoot. In fact, Weaver's comedic talents enlivened many an episode and were too often underrated. Then too, can't miss the villainous looking Lee Van Cleef as Rad, which means he must be a bad guy. Also, should note presence of Peggy Stewart, who appeared in many oaters and serials of the 1940's, in brief role as Rad's wife.
