Storyline

Bart's nosing round Bent Spur pursuing his friend's murderer. Bart was so down on his luck, he spent a winter trapping beaver outside town. Bent Spur's overstocked with red herrings, who too easily slip through the fingers of Sheriff Barney F, including the killer, broken out of jail by the evil Brink. The murder victim's brassy lady-friend/casino partner is a quick rebounder, who immediately sidles up to the suspicious Bart. Written by David Stevens

Gambler's Honor
7 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode has Bart Maverick coming to the town of Bent Spur where the sheriff Mike Connors is a might touchy about prisoner Ed Kemmer escaping just before he was to hang. In fact Jack Kelly pretends to be a friend of the deceased when in fact he's on a mission to find the real killer. Call it a gambler's honor paying off a debt.

Including Connors this is a town rich in suspects. The deceased was quite the lady's man and he didn't care much about age or wedding rings. Among those he coveted was Kemmer's wife Fay Spain.

In the end the deceased's lust is what leads Kelly to the killer.

This one is more of a mystery than a western, still good stuff.
