Paladin Saving, Building Lives...
4 March 2014 | by ttbird2000See all my reviews

This is a serious episode, told in a light-hearted manner. One fine Friday evening, Paladin is approached by a bank president to help him engage in deception - a bar of gold has gone missing, and only one man - the trusted bank teller, who has disappeared - had means to steal it. The bank president engages Paladin to find the man, recover the bar, and have it returned to the vault by first thing Monday morning (when the bank examiner comes on his annual visit).

Paladin locates the teller, but he finds that the circumstances have changed for the teller -there are now other parties to be considered. Paladin must act quickly to save a life, help create a life, and to rebuild a life, for several people. Can he do it? Well, to find out, you must watch the episode.

One more thing: One of the funniest moments in the entire series is in this episode. It begins when the meek teller pulls a gun on the unarmed Paladin. Since he is Paladin, you know he will find a way out of this predicament. But the cunning, and the simplicity, with which he does it is simply not to be missed.

Ida Lupino (famous movie star, and later accomplished director) directed this episode, with great pacing, and humor.
