Cheyenne is in Rio Hondo, Mexico. He owns a pair of wagons used to haul freight in the area although it is dangerous due to Mexican Revolutionaries fighting the Maximilian French. The stage arrives with a beautiful blonde, Mississippi, and a local hacienda owner, Bolados. Cheyenne follows them into the cantina. Boladas asks Mississippi to join him for dinner. After she leaves, Cheyenne confronts him. He owes Cheyenne for delivering breeding stock to his hacienda from the U.S. but skipped out on paying. He agrees to pay Cheyenne the next morning. That evening Cheyenne sees Mississippi take Bolados' wallet so he follows her upstairs. He learns Bolados had the money on him plus he is leaving the next morning. At the same time friends of the cantina owner Manuel plead with Cheyenne to help smuggle a man for them but he wants nothing to do with the local politics. Back in the cantina dining area Bolados is killed by a stray shot from the French trying to stop the revolutionaries before ... Written by Anonymous

Boredom In Rio Hondo
19 February 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst Cheyenne episodes ever. I sat watching this poor excuse for a Western, waiting for something remotely exciting to happen, guess didn't! Clint Walker was his usual laid back self, but even he seemed to be wondering what the storyline was meant to convey.

Peggie Castle as the blonde sultry pickpocket Mississippi, tried to lift the proceedings, but with a screenplay as uninteresting as this i'm afraid she was wasting her time.

Nearly all the scenes were studio shot, which didn't help to try and inject some pace into the plot and I have to say that the French border patrol officers were about as French as Mexican jumping beans!
