The real West, huh?
7 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Typical episode with Cheyenne being pursued by a rich attractive lonely widow with cute-kid type and disapproving mother-in-law. Then there's the bad guy, with friends trying to rescue him, Cole Younger, who Cheyenne is escorting via train to a Denver prison. Add to the mix a wild stallion that enjoys its freedom representing Cole or Cheyenne, take your pick. Did I mention the inside man, a crooked railroad conductor. Then the unbelievable ending with Cole's gang freeing him, but he chooses to listen to Cheyenne's little talk about responsibility and instead of escaping to Mexico, he chooses to continue on to prison.Unfortunately for Cheyenne, the widow decides she wants her freedom too, sneaky old wild stallion symbol, and off she goes; but not to fear, a hot blond steps in to comfort Cheyenne and mend his broken heart. Nothing like the real wild West.
