Done up to look much older than his tender years, Buddy Hackett guest stars in this unusually violent segment of The Rifleman. Hackett plays uncouth Daniel Malakie, arriving in town to bail out his three hell-raising sons. When he learns that one of the sons, Ben (Christopher Dark), mistakenly shot and killed brother Stump (John Durren), Malakie goes after the man he believes responsible. This fine episode of the superior series was helmed by future ace director Arthur Hiller.
