For today's episode from a TV Western, I've chosen one from the Gene Barry classic revision of an historical legend, 'Bat Masterson'.

"No Amnesty For Death" was uploaded because one of the guest stars is DeForest Kelley who would years later achieve cathode immortality as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the 'Star Trek' franchise. Back in the fifties, however, he was better known as a heavy and appeared as such in quite a few Westerns.

But I selected this episode over any other 'Bat Masterson' episode online because "No Amnesty For Death" also has R.G. Armstrong as the main guest star. This durable, dependable character actor just passed away last month, so this makes for a nice tribute to him as well as to De Kelley.....
