Season 1 Ep.01: The Blind Gun
Smith convinces a blinded bank robber to lead him to the location where the bandit hid his loot in exchange for arranging for an operation to restore his sight. Two of the thief’s former confederates decide to help themselves to the plunder.
Audie Murphy appeared in a number of enjoyable westerns in the 1950′s before trying his luck in TV with this role as a cowboy detective. The acting and casting in this series were well-executed. However, the writing and erratic story lines were problematic in this series.
Audie Murphy was perfect for this role, which had been originated in a movie of the same name. Murphy made the role his own, and seemed to be very serious about seeing this series succeed. Eventually, he returned to the silver screen, seemingly disillusioned by his TV experience.
