  • A Cowboy actor who never loses faces a real life showdown with the real Jesse James.

    Not one of the brighter moments of the series but calling Larry Blyden an untalented hack is just plain ridiculous. I agree that Blyden wasn't right for the part & neither was Arch Johnson as Jesse James. The idea of having Eric Fleming & James Best as the main characters might actually have worked to the shows advantage. The episode does have a few laughable moments but that's about it. Larry Blyden gave a much better performance in his earlier episode A Nice Place To Visit. Ironically, Rod Serling was asked to play the part of Rocky Valentine but turned it down.
