[Questions why Julie is going after her husband's killer]
Julie, I don't mean to step out of line but I've known you and Sid ever since you first came here. I watched you fight the land for Sid and you lost. Now, I don't know what you had before, but these past few years, you didn't love him. Not really.

Even with great actors- you still need an interesting story.
I really wanted to like this episode. It had the lovely and great actress, Barbara Stanwyck, and actor David Janssen in the lead parts which made for an interesting duo as we start the story. But this just goes to prove that even with such nice actors, you must have to have an interesting story to make for an entertaining show. This episode was disappointing.
The story involved a drought in place in a western county and the cattlemen are talking to landowner Sid Holman about letting them water their cattle in his lake. Well for some reason, Sid seems hostile about the others needs and wants to charge money for letting the cattlemen to the water. This does not set well with the local ranchers.
During the evening Sid is shot and his wife, Julie played by Ms Stanwyck, is set on finding the killer. Julie has little hopes in the Sheriff so she sets out, with Seth Larker played by Janssen, to find the killer even if it takes them to Mexico.
If for some reason a viewer keeps watching to the end, they are rewarded with a gritty performance by Stanwyck. But for most people, they will lose interest in the episode as it appeared lost from the very beginning. The story was just not that interesting.
