May 26, 1889 - Apache chief Geronimo is looking to resupply his raiding party's ammunition stocks and attacks an army supply train just north of Tombstone killing the small army guard detail. Wile Sheriff Hollister and his men search the county looking for Geronimo, he makes his way to town and hides out in a pool hall. Waiting for an illegal arms dealer to deliver his ammo, Geronimo is detected and Hollister is only steps away from an encounter with the chief.Written by
Geronimo! An interesting episode, co-starring the delicious Angie Dickinson, and an appearance by "Fred Ziffel" (Hank Patterson). One drawback - it was typical of 1950's Westerns to cast white actors as American Indians. With the utmost respect to actor John Doucette, he simply doesn't come across as Geronimo. Add to that, the overacting by Lieutenant Forsythe (George Gilbreth). And, last week's episode of Tombstone Territory was set in the year 1885... this episode is set in 1889, but Sheriff Hollister hasn't aged a bit in 4 years. There is also the historical error regarding Geronimo's surrender/capture. Geronimo surrendered in 1886. This episode claims to have happened in 1889. Not possible. Finally, the ending of this show does not bring closure. So, I have to give it only 7 stars.
