This is a finely wrought triangle story with due credit to writer and director as well as the three actors intimately involved: Dennis Weaver, Mitzi Hoag, Lonny Chapman. When Marshal Dillon's constant helper Chester (Dennis Weaver) can't have warm-hearted Mitzi Hoag for himself he does all he can to shelter her from the vicissitudes of romantic love with already married Lonny Chapman. who lets his neglected wife die out on in a prairie shack attended by an overburdened old Indian woman (well played for authenticity rather than glamor also). Bouquets to all three in the triangle, with Lonny Chapman's role being particularly subtly written, giving more than a hint of this weak man's desperation in grasping at something better (easier) for himself at the cost of all around him.
