James Olsen stars as Owen Deaver, a headstrong sheriff who is determined to bring the Philadelphia Municipal code to his western town, despite the wishes of the entire populace. When he arrests a wanted man for carrying a gun in his no weapons allowed town, Deaver finds himself standing alone against the man's gang, with Paladin locked up in jail.
Solid episode though Olsen's character is written a bit extreme. He's a little too insistent on his way without explaining why. Lurene Tuttle is a pleasure as Ma Deaver (she was a frequent character on the "Andy Griffith Show" and was in Don Knotts' "Ghost and Mr. Chicken") forcing Owen to choose--either his mother is going to go out and help face the bad guys--or he's going to free Paladin to help. Who would YOU chose? Alan Carney, formerly of the comedy team of Brown and Carney appears as merchant Henry Nolan, proving he can handle straight parts perhaps even better than funny ones such as in comedies like "Zombies on Broadway".
