Ex-gunslinger, now pathetic drunk Al Denton is given another chance by a mysterious stranger. But perhaps the chance he is given may not be the solution to his problems after all.
Rod's Intro " Portrait of a town drunk named Al Denton. This is a man who's begun his dying early. A long, agonizing route through a maze of bottles. Al Denton, who would probably give an arm or a leg or a part of his soul to have another chance, to be able to rise up and shake the dirt from his body and the bad dreams that infest his consciousness. [Shot of Henry J. Fate.] In the parlance of the times, this is a peddler, a rather fanciful looking little man in a black frock coat. [a six-gun materializes beside Denton.] And this is the third principal character of our story. Its function, perhaps to give Mister Al Denton his second chance. "
Rod's Outro" Mr. Henry fate, dealer in utensils and pots and pans, liniments and potions. A fanciful little man in a black frock coat who can help a man climbing out of a pit. Or another man from falling into one. Because, you see, Fate can work that way... in the Twilight Zone. "
