'Saddle the Wind' (1958): Brothers and cattlemen in the old West, stoic Robert Taylor and hotheaded, younger John Cassavetes face off from opposite sides of an ideological chasm: is the West a place of honor or of violence? Saloon singer Julie London witnesses their struggle, knowing it must end sadly but wishing otherwise. The open prairie forms a surprising but fitting crucible for Serling’s distinctive brand of moral drama.
The Twilight Zone: "Mr. Denton On Doomsday"(CBS, 10/16/59): Twilight on the prairie. A showdown in a dusty western town takes an uncommon turn when Fate himself plays a hand, lending help to a washed-up gunslinger. But of course...there's a twist.
