I love this episode for the Cartwright stuff, which has mostly been mentioned.

But it makes me a little crazy that they cast Martin Landau as a hispanic guy. He does a good job, and the make up is pretty good (unless you're looking for flaws), but there are a couple of scenes where his blue eyes look very strange. Also, I'd love to know what they put on his shirt, because his horse was all over him a couple of times!

I kind’ve liked the contrast between his skin and eyes. You almost wondered what side he was on since he had a devious “past.” We’re used to seeing Mexicans with dark skin and eyes, but even Mexicans with mostly or purely European blood can have some light features. Of course the most tragic part is what happened to the horse, but at least Ben got to see what his sons intentions were.

I suppose. My problem is that I watched Landau on Mission Impossible and Space:1999, and every time they did a good close up of his eyes it'd remind me of what he usually looks like, which was distracting.
