Sam Harder fresh out of prison for a robbery returns to Medicine Bow where Trampas finds him. They are close friends as Sam once saved Trampas's life so Trampas finds Sam a job at Shiloh since he is experienced at breaking horses. The $50,000 in gold from the robbery was never found so Detective George Johnson is following Sam hoping he will lead Johnson to the gold. Sam, however, expects Bleeck the one partner in the raid who escaped to come after him and he does with two deadly partners. Trampas, who had knowledge of the robbery and Bleeck, sees what is happening and decides to help Sam as payback. The Virginian learns about Sam's background from Johnson and becomes concerned when Trampas disappears as he suspects what Trampas is trying to do. He enlists the aid of the Sheriff and Johnson to trail Trampas and the others but must convince Johnson Trampas is not after the gold but to protect Sam. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


In the scene where Edward Asner mounts his horse and rides after the suspect he's been chasing, you can see scrapes on his face that weren't there before the scene started. That's because during rehearsal when Asner began to mount his horse it unexpectedly took off before he had completely mounted it and headed toward a tree with some low-hanging branches, with Asner hanging onto the side of the horse. The branches hit him in the face and knocked him off the horse, scraping his face up. The make-up people tried to hide the scrapes with make-up, but they're still quite visible in the scene.

Hardboiled attitude
13 April 2013 | by pfors-647-501497See all my reviews

Wiry Frank Fenton script, crackling with hardboiled attitude, gets plenty of mileage out of routine buried loot plot. Bradford Dillman, who often played weaklings, doesn't yield an inch in his heroic role here, even out-staring Drury in one scene. John Dehner makes a five-course meal out of his sardonic bad guy role and devours each morsel. Dehner would be only marginally less antisocial when he assumed the part of Morgan Starr, new boss of Shiloh, after Lee J. Cobb flew the coop midway in season four. The horsemanship of Edward Asner, playing a dude detective hot on the trail of the crooks, is quite a sight. Think of a potted plant precariously perched on a pitching precipice.
