4. Con-Men, Fipple Flutes & Other Stories

Listen to These Programs:  Have Gun, Will Travel:  Dad Blamed Luck   ~   Have Gun, Will Travel:  Five Days to Yuma   ~   The Halls of Ivy:  The Ivy Chamber Music & Knockwurst Society   ~   Gunsmoke:  Cheyennes

I don't know about you, but I love reading novels and watching films about a number of subjects. Even so, there are certain genres that are truly  irresistible.  At the top of that list are stories about cons and con-men.

I remember sitting in the Lakewood Drive-In Theater with my brand new wife (married less than a year) watching The Sting.  Remember how Paul Newman (as Henry Gondoff) and Robert Redford (as Johnny Hooker) took down the the kingpin Doyle Lonnegan (played by Robert Shaw)?  Sheer movie bliss.   

Our first program this week is about a prospector who persuades Paladin to help him get back a gold mine he lost in a crooked poker game. Paladin reluctantly agrees but is met with one surprise after another.

Did the old man really own the mine?  Was it actually stolen from him?  If so, who all was involved in the theft? Just when you think you have it figured out you will be hit with yet another plot twist.
