| Watchable but unsurprising TV Western
Gene Barry plays an outlaw who provokes an almost supernatural fear in the surrounding Native American population. They believe he is of the devil. Miss Sarah is a housewife who may be psychic and is clearly open to the power of suggestion. Through a complication, she and her husband, both en route to a new home, have the job of transporting the outlaw to justice. What follows is a game that might be just psychological in nature or could be something more. I was expecting a horror themed western; however, the Devil and Miss Sara is better described as a western with mild supernatural overtones. This isn't what I expected but the cast, especially Gene Barry, make it worthwhile.
