Episode Summary

EDIT
The Last Gunfight
AIRED:
Gunfighter Johnny Dean wants to shed his reputation by settling down in Silver City under the alias "Roger Enright." He plans to buy a ranch north of town and marry the local music teacher, Helen Ivers. Trouble arrives in the form of Dan Crawford, a young man who's been trailing Dean and who wants to kill him in a shootout in order to acquire a reputation. Local bully Burt Johnson learns of Crawford's quest and decides to kill Dean himself. To settle which man will get the "honor," Crawford and Johnson play cards. Crawford wins but when Johnson learns Crawford has a reputation for shady card-dealing, he challenges Crawford to a duel on the town's street. Dean tries to avert bloodshed by stepping between them but the men fire anyway and Dean is killed. Deputy McCord checks the body and says it shows only one bullet hole. Each shooter claims to be the one who fired the fatal shot but McCord refuses to settle their dispute, not wanting either man to claim "credit." He later confides to Marshal Fry that two bullets actually hit Dean.moreless
