| Politics Down-And-Dirty
Good acting and an intense, involving story make this a very interesting episode. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. Our hero, Josh Randal,l performs an selfless act but a lying, power-hungry woman gets away with something.

This episode shows how dirty political races are nothing new. This one is very bad as a candidate kills his own brother just to get votes in the battle for mayor of a town. He's corrupt as can be, even wanted in another state for murder, but he seems to have the upper hand on his opponent, "Ned Easter," an old friend of Josh Randall.

Josh tries to help with in the election but the whole thing turns uglier and uglier as it goes on. Saying more would ruin it, so I'll stop here, except to give a plug to Bethel Leslie, Wayne Morris and DeForest Kelley for their guest performances.
