Charles Bronson and Dyan Cannon
17 February 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Man Who Wouldn't Talk" was the second of five appearances on the series by Charles Bronson, here playing the title role of Chris Jorgenson, gunman and rancher, whose painful shyness around the opposite sex leads him to hire Paladin to teach him the basics. Living on the ranch next to Chris is the object of his affections, Maria de Castro (Grace Raynor), who lives with her grandmother from Spain (Celia Lovsky), and has been experiencing some trouble with her cattle herd. Paladin decides to motivate Chris by getting him riled up with jealousy, and also helps put an end to the cattle problems. Harry Carey Jr. plays Jorgenson's ranch boss, and 21 year old Dyan (billed as Diane) Cannon makes her first credited television appearance in the very first scene, two years before making her movie debut. Lovely Grace Raynor had an all too brief career, mostly on TV Westerns, ending by 1964. Bronson's first episode was "The Outlaw," and his next would be "A Proof of Love."
