Written by: Jack Miller

Directed by: Gerald Mayer

Guest Stars: Simon Oakland (Mel Barnes/Frank Scott), Nita Talbot (Gladys), Carl Reindel (Andy Buchanan), Ray Teal (Sheriff Roy Coffee)

Hoss cannot convince Andy Buchanan they convicted the wrong man of murder, and when Andy refuses to testify against the real killer, the results are devastating.

Trivia: This was the second of Simon Oakland’s three appearances in the series. One of the movies’ most memorable tough guys, Simon Oakland actually began his career as a concert violinist, turning to acting in the late 1940s.
