Pic of the Day: “Encounter at Boot Hill” revisited

Today we revisit “Encounter at Boot Hill,” the Rawhide episode that first aired on September 14, 1965. Nasty deputy sheriff Ed Walker has just gotten his first look at interloper Rowdy Yates (Clint Eastwood), and he does not like what he sees.

Encounter at Boot Hill - 1965

When one of Timothy’s bad guy characters grins at you, he is not being friendly. It’s a warning that you’d better start thinking of ways to defend yourself. He’s contemplating how many ways he can kick your ass from here to Sunday, and how much fun he’s going to have doing it. It’s the predatory grin of the shark. Get the hell out of Dodge while you still can!
