Storyline

Hannibal and Kid Currey got 2 jjobs; one dangerous the other, who knows. The Kid lost the coin toss (as usual), and is to deliver a wagon-load of high explosives to a mining operation. Hannibal gets the job of playing tour guide for a group of archaeologists looking for a long lost tribe of Indians; almost 7ft. tall, and with flaming red hair. As the Kid faces every life threatening situation imaginable, Hannibal Heyes begins to realise that no one on the expeditionms what they seem - except, for the lovely Julia Finney, and someone has murder in mind. No wonder his job pays more, if only Hannibal can survive to collect it. Written by David Foss

...except for Heyes and Curry. Curry loses a coin-toss with Heyes, as usual, and gets to drive a wagon full of TNT to a mining camp while Heyes contracts with a gent from Australia looking for "seven-foot tall, red-haired Indian" remains INSIDE of Devil's Hole. (The gang actually puts up with the idea, surprisingly enough, now that Big Jim Santana went straight; his "grandy-oose" plans were unsettling to the guys, now led by Kyle. That's all the detail you get!) Heyes actually finds evidence of the Indians - one of them, anyhow - with his former gang's members watching the proceedings from the bluffs.

Well, the gent from Australia is neither a gentleman nor from Australia; his associate is not his friend, but something else; and the third is neither on his honeymoon with Juliet Mills ("Nanny and the Professor") nor from Down Under, either. At least Heyes, Kyle, Lobo and the rest of the gang are who they are.

Thank the Lord for DVD. I had to watch the last several minutes a few times, as the proceedings unravel faster than a long row of dominoes can fall over. Slim Pickens and Patrick Macnee are their usual sterling selves in this episode, although if the story was a bit tighter it would have been more enjoyable. A good watch, nonetheless.
