Storyline

Paul Campbell (a pre-Hawaii Five-0 Jack Lord) has a dream - hitting a gold strike. His wife Dorothy (Lisabeth Hush) has heard it all many, many times before, and wants Paul to give it all up for a normal job and life. The problem is money - Paul and Dorothy have none. Besides being on credit with 'Pop' Tullett (Broderick Crawford), the local general store owner, they live in one of his cabins. Pop is about ready to draw the line with Paul, but he has a yen for Dorothy and thinks there may be more than one way to get payed back. When Dorothy's brother Chris (Andrew Prine) returns from his stint in Vietnam, Paul gets him to go in as partners. They find the gold strike, but Paul miscalculated the claim and Pop takes advantage of the situation. Pop confronts Paul, who realizes he's lost everything and is ready to give up prospecting for the sake of Dorothy. Chris has different ideas and goes after Pop. After a tragic accident, Paul tries to get Chris to come to his senses, but is it too ...

Worth seeing in order to see Jack Lord in his pre-Five-O days.
4 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Throughout much of this episode, Paul Campbell (Jack Lord) has been breaking his back prospecting in an old mine...looking for gold. In order to make ends meet, he's had to borrow quite a bit of money from a nasty old shop keeper named Pop (Broderick Crawford) and it seems that everyone except Paul realizes that Pop is no good. When Paul's brother arrives to help, he sure sees Pop for what he is! And, after Paul does strike it rich, it's time for Pop to show his true colors. What's next? Watch the show. Just rest assured that Paul's brother isn't going to just give up!

Like many episodes of "Kraft Suspense Theatre", this is available to watch on YouTube. However, it's also among the least interesting of the episodes I've seen. Now I am not saying it's bad...just not all that interesting.
