It Ain't Motel Six
27 February 2010 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

So which of the three hard-cases is Fred Horn, the gunsel hired to kill Paladin. We don't know, but Paladin better find out quickly since they're all packed together in a small hotel and he isn't going to get a second chance.. There's some suspense, but what distinguishes this episode is a touchy topic for the time—what used to be called "white slavery". Comely, young Mary (Lincoln) has been sold to hotel-keeper (Calder) for $50. Now she has to pay him off by offering, shall we say, special services to paying guests (I like the way this service is subtly suggested and the way she anxiously touches her hair when Paladin prefers hot water instead. I also like the way the script has Walt {Anderson} indicate how rural poverty can cause this awful thing to happen.)

Good thing the script keeps us guessing because it's a cheaply produced entry, confined basically to a single indoor set. The cast does include two Dragnet favorites, viz. Bartell and Harris, along with that fine Lincolnesque actor John Anderson. One incidental point to note. Most of the town exteriors in these TV Westerns were filmed on sound stages. One dead give-away is when you see a single object (usually a person) unnaturally cast more than one shadow, as happens in this episode. The multiple shadows are caused by the multiple klieg lights illuminating the set. As far as I know, no attempt was made to disguise or offset this intrusion. Seems odd to me, given all of Hollywood's famed expertise..
