Episode: Shadow Of A Gunfighter

Role: Jim Winfield

One month after Peligroso aired, Robert again appeared in The Restless Gun. Jim Winfield is a young man trying to escape his father’s gun-fighter reputation. After trail-bossing a cattle drive, Jim enthusiastically celebrates in a saloon. Concerned he is an easy target for thieves, Vint Bonner (John Payne), a friend of Jim’s father, escorts him upstairs to sober up. Like so many of Robert’s earlier roles, Jim finds himself on the wrong end of a bullet. The contrast between Bud (Peligroso) and Jim – brings attention to the versatility required of an actor.

Having already served time for arson, Judd becomes the main suspect when a warehouse is set on fire.

For its first two seasons U.S. Marshal was known as The Sheriff of Cochise, changing its name in October, 1958, to U.S. Marshal for the third and fourth seasons when studio boss Desi Arnez Sr. decided the main character, Sheriff Frank Morgan (John Bromfield), needed a wider jurisdiction and greater number of cases to investigate. Robert’s role in this 1959 season of U.S. Marshal has him playing an army corporal taken hostage, along with girlfriend Laurie Miller, by Pvt. Ravenol (Charles Bronson), a disgruntled soldier deserting from the army.
