Episode Quotes

William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: What's wrong, Jack? It looks like you've seen a ghost.
Jack Fontana: Masterson is dead. The man who shows up here will be a stranger - a trespasser. Now we got every right to gun him down.
Nellie Fontana: If he lets you.
Jack Fontana: He'll let me. He won't be looking when it happens.
Nellie Fontana: He's more than a murderer, he's a madman! He killed a poor saddle tramp to put in your grave. He killed Judge Hodie, too. He's going to kill me next, unless I get away from here.
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: I wouldn't dream of letting him kill my own widow. Not as long as I'm alive.


  • Sam Buffington who played the Judge was only 27 at the time although his character appeared to be over 50 years old. Sadly he died less than a year after this original telecast on May 15th, 1961 at the age of 28.
