      • James Drury gives a wonderful performance in this episode as a man without sight. He also expertly demonstrates the Virginian's great friendship with Trampas as he is rescued at the corral. His tearful embrace of Trampas is a very dramtic moment. James Whitmore, as always, gives a solid portrayal of a man angry at the world for his own shortcomings.
