Scary episode of "The Rifleman"

As "The Rifleman" Chuck Connors as Lucas McCain almost met his match with Charlie Gordo, portrayed by Lon Chaney Jr. Foreshadowing Hannibal Lechter by thirty years, Charlie Gordo sits in his jail and masterminds his breakout.

Titled "Gunfire," this episode of "The Rifleman" takes on film noir qualities with actual suspense leading up to the climax.

To counter balance the haunting of Lon Chaney Jr., Mark McCain (Johnny Crawford) shines in the comedy of a first date.
