Bolt From The Blue
31 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is Ed Robertson's favorite from season 4. Beau is mistaken for a horse thief, and we know what they did with horse thieves in those days. The title derives from prospector Ebenezer Bolt. Beau spends a good bit of time with a noose around his neck awaiting the "hanging judge," Hookstraten, who rides along singing "The Hanging Tree." He wants $25 for sentencing Beau to hang. They must wait until midnight, however, because the law says a man cannot be hung on Sunday. Will Hutchins is a lawyer in this one. He was Sugarfoot in one of Warner Brothers' westerns. Those TV westerns shielded a generation from such American realities as Korea and Vietnam. For a while! "Handsome is as handsome does!" Written by Robert Altman.
