With such great actors, the story never seemed to flow.
8 August 2016 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Cole Eldridge (William Campbell) has just been pardon by the Territorial Governor and on his way by train to see his girl, Ruby Walker. But on the train is a man, Lin Hyatt (Lee Van Cleef) that does not take too kindly on Cole's release. So Hyatt has a plan where he will rob the train and make Cole the escape goat for the killing and theft. And sure enough, it works to perfection and the innocent Cole is wanted for murder.

Now here is where the story gets a little weird. It seems Luke is a friend of Cole's and is on his way to a small town to see him. When he is not at the location, Luke teams up with Cole's girlfriend and rides a long way south where Cole is staying. Cole is held-up in a town called Deep Well where criminals go when they have no where else to lay their head. But it is not long before Hyatt and his three friends on are the path to Deep Water to hang the man they framed.

The acting was excellent. William Campbell and Lee Van Cleef were on top of their game. Campbell made the wanted man so friendly, he felt like part of the family. While Cleef plays the villain so well, he makes it look easy. Where the episode is lacking is in the story. Was not sure why Luke Perry was so passionate for Cole to come work for the Stagecoach. Cole had always been trouble and this is not someone that you want carrying payroll money nor the US mail. And the fact that Luke, on two occasions, referred to being a Deputy US Marshal but only takes it serious when the script dictates such a move. The story never seem to flow and got bogged down on matters that had nothing to do with the plot.
