Storyline

Not long after bad-tempered Frank Scott is hanged for murdering a young woman in a dark Virginia City alley, witness for the prosecution, Hoss Cartwright, sees a man in a Carson City saloon who looks just like Frank, hears him whistling the same strange tune the killer whistled that fateful night, and begins to fear that his testimony has sent the wrong man to the gallows.

good episode, except for the review
28 September 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

Another reviewer before me, jlhp23, he nailed it quite right about the whistling Thunder Man and the "New Orleans Woman" tune and the needlessly duplicated shows. Obviously another Bonanza aficionado.

However, the same reviewer than wrote: "All the violence is largely just implied so I don't mind if the kids watch it." I disagree 100%. All violence in all movies and all TV shows is "just implied". Even videos in documentaries about Jack the Ripper or Charles Manson are "just implied". Not cool.
