Interesting how in the end scene, Lauro matches his stride to Paladin's as they walk down the street. See more »


Paladin has 'hat hair' when he removes his hat in reverence to the casket of his friend, Abel Hix. In the scene immediately following, his locks have been nicely rearranged. See more »

Refreshing Addition to Paladin's Character Development
25 June 2018 | by roycevenuterSee all my reviews

I taught a course examining five episodes of "Have Gun, Will Travel," two years ago; and I would include this episode if I taught it again. Although the conflict involves ambush and vindication of Paladin, Abel Hix's wife, best friend and pastor serve as able reflectors to facilitate yet one more dimension of Paladin's ability to pan for golden ore in loss and suffering, despite the scurvy slime of some craven bully's hubristic power trip. The plot reveals nothing ahead by not disclosing spoilers with foreshadowing clues, which promotes suspense. The writing is memorable, concise and succinct; and Robert Blake provides four surprising twists unique to this episode in contrast with the 224 other episodes over the course of the series. The greatest strength resides, however, in what is not spoken. The most skillful actors do not require language with which to communicate the Human Condition.
