This episode of Rawhide has Steve Raines going to a town where Ralph Bellamy
holds court. Bellamy is Quince's older brother and it is his niece who had written
to her uncle to see if he could reason with Bellamy.
Bellamy is a hanging judge who reflectively imposes maximum sentences whenever he can. Right now Burt Douglas who owns the local saloon is being
brought back for a hanging. Only he's the man Whitfield loves.
Bellamy gives a good performance running a gamut of emotions as we learn
the reason he just reflexively hangs people. His idea of law and order.
Bellamy really goes out on a limb in this one. I wasn't quite expecting the
ending I got which is always a good sign.
Ray Teal and Roy Barcroft are also in this Rawhide story to give it a real wstern
