A young insecure college sportsman is in trouble. He wants to marry his very straightforward girlfriend, also a student, but has no money. When he is offered a bribe to fix a game, he is torn even more about the matter.
The star was a Los Angeles real estate executive who always wanted to be an actor. The character he played, Tate, was a man whose left arm was paralyzed by a wound in the Civil War. He drifted, hungry and disabled, and practiced with his pistol until he became a one armed gun for hire. After it became known that Tate was as quick and deadly as the killers and bullies he was paid to deal with he was sought after by every crazy in the country. He faced them all. Tate became paranoid and overly defensive because he had only one arm. When people messed with Tate he shot old women, school teachers, stray dogs, preachers and innocent bystanders. He struck out out every threat, real or imagined. The first attempt at reality TV in the western genre. And it was great. Still is. I want it on DVD. Now.
