Storyline

Jim Wheeler has turned to alcohol because his law partner Gil Foster has earned more respect and good standing in the small Western town where they practice law, and Gil has become engaged to June, his former girlfriend. When Jim disappears, blood and other evidence found in his cabin point to Gil as a killer. Even though no body is never discovered, the circumstantial evidence cause him to be arrested and convicted of murder by his former friends and neighbors. After ten years in prison, Gil is freed and remains determined to find Jim and clear his name. Written by duke1029@aol.com

B Western
19 June 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

George Sherman was a dependable director of the better sort of B westerns, first for Republic, then Universal. He capped his career with a couple of John Wayne westerns in the early 1970s. So when he was tapped to direct an episode of Roach's SCREEN DIRECTORS PLAYHOUSE, he wound up with this soundstage-and-backlot western.

Unfortunately, while the story was potentially interesting, none of the lead actors was particularly so. Macdonald Carey had a bit of a vogue as a minor leading man in the 1950s before settling into TV soaps. Dick Haymes was ten years past his prime as a musical star. James Dunn could give a fine performance when offered a great role and a great director, but he has neither here; the performances seemed gauged for a movie screen rather than a television screen. The best performance is probably Roy Roberts as the judge, but there's little to call that on in this competent, watchable, but ultimately forgettable show.
