A family feud gets so bad that one father hires a gunfighter
6 November 2012 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

In this episode we have a story involving two families that are at odds with each other. One family, the Haimes, consist of the father and his son named Cully. The other family, the Boldens, consist of the father and his daughter named Janie. The two young people are in love and the feud is between the fathers not wanting their children to marry the other child.

One day the two fathers get together for an all out fist-a-cuffs but is interrupted when Cully injures Mr Bolden. Right after this Mr Bolden hires a gunfighter to put the fear into Cully and to make him stay away from his daughter.

The cold professional gunfighter, Boyd Avery, does his work till it is completed. His intentions is to kill Cully and not just to scare him unless the full amount of money is paid to leave the area.

Mr Bolden agrees to pay the high fee but word has leaked out that the gunfighter is here to kill Cully. So when Cully confronts Body Avery in the street of Dodge and they agree to meet the following morning in the old town outside Dodge for a gunfight.

Things look bad for Cully as Boyd is a known professional that has a reputation for killing many people. When Janie hears the news she decides to go to the old town. Will she be able to stop the gunfight before someone ends up dead? And with the fathers also arriving will they be able to stop the feud?

A very nice story that was perfectly cast. From the fathers to the gunfighter each actor brought the character alive to make for an entertaining episode. Nice watch
