Some Good, Some Bad
23 March 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This started off good but turned out to be kind of a goofy episode, not really up to "Wanted: Dead Or Alive" standards because of the last 10 minutes. Before that, it was rolling along in typical bounty-hunter-story fashion, but it lapsed into horrible clichés that you usually don't see with

"Josh Randall) (Steve McQueen.) Josh rides into Payson City on a sweltering summer day, with the aim of picking up "Lance Thayer" for delivery somewhere and a $500 reward. Instead, a hostile sheriff gives him a beautiful woman, Thayer's partner, "Suan Marno" (Lisa Gaye). She was Thayer's partner in crime, but the latter got away.

It's not exactly what Josh was expecting, but she's an eyeful and worth $500, too, so he says, "Okay, let's go." The sheriff warns him she's tough and "it's a three-day trip and anything can happen, especially with her partner on the loose." Josh shrugs, and leaves with her.

What happens after that is both good and bad and, sadly, predictable. That usually is not a trait of this program.

Gaye, who played the seductive "Susan," had a lot of TV roles in the 1950s and 1960s but gave up the acting business in 1970. She had various roles in well-known TV shows like "Perry Mason" and "77 Sunset Strip."
