Not much to this story
7 August 2015 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

There is not much you can say about this episode without giving away the entire story. Since there is very little to this story I will stay away from the plot and concentrate on the actors.

It was great to see the beautiful Angie Dickinson in one of her very early roles. Even at this early age there was something special about this women. James Best, known for his 'Dukes of Hazzard' days, was a thin young man at the time of filming. Nice to see an actor in the early time of his work. And let's not forget the small role played by Dick Elliott, the first Mayor of Andy Griffith's Mayberry, which always adds to a show with his unique voice.

Otherwise, cannot say much about the episode. We did get to see some handy stunts by Dick Jones which involves his ability at riding horses and also his energy when jumping through windows but little else.

Even with the star casting, this was just too little to this script to cause much interest. There was so little to the story that the main plot seemed like fluff. After some nice shows, this one fell flat.
