Cavalry to the Rescue?
20 March 2013 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Matt and Chester encounter a burning homestead on the prairie. The family has been killed and scalped by renegade Cheyenne. A cavalry detachment rides up, headed by an arrogant captain. Because of his contact with a Cheyenne elder, Matt is able to locate the meeting place where gunrunners supply the renegades with new rifles. The trouble is that no Indian better be killed, otherwise the whole tribe will rise up. So how can Matt finesse things and stop the gunrunning.

Above average entry with good suspense and staging (the burning farmhouse). Matt and the cavalry appear to be working at unusually cross purposes. Walter Brooke also turns in a nicely shaded performance as the slightly dislikable captain. It's also an episode without Kitty or Doc. Note the Boot Hill prologue where Matt reveals sympathy for the Indians losing their land. Still, he puts duty before all else.
