Joe Baker writes Cheyenne to come visit as he has a business proposition. With the help of Sam Wilson and his wife Victoria who will pay to outfit the group, they're going to ride down just below the Mexican border and round up hundreds of mustangs that are running wild. At $30 a head, they would all clean up. When Cheyenne shows up, Joe is too sick to sit a horse but Cheyenne is still willing to help out his friend and act alone as guide. Victoria, however, is not so generous. They need another worker and she insists that the wages come out of Joe and Cheyenne's share. The bearded Jed Begert runs off the other candidates for the job but both Sam and Cheyenne feel he is qualified. They decide to keep the party small and hire wranglers in Mexico based on Jed's advice.

Mustang Trail
9 August 2013 | by (texas,usa) – See all my reviews

Richard L. Bare directed some of the series best episodes, but this isn't one of them. It's not terrible in any way, but the story of a treacherous Mustang round-up meanders slowly along the studio set trail (with the help of some real outdoor stock footage).

In addition to Cheyenne, the central characters are played by Diane Brewster and Ross Elliot as a dull, disinterested couple, and veteran Western movie bad guy, Robert Wilkie, who sports a comically fake looking scruffy beard.

In order to spark some life into the script, there's some long winded comic relief about bad trail food, and a number of strained plot contrivances. There's little action until the very end.

If you're selectively choosing Cheyenne episodes to view, you can safely skip this one. You won't be missing much.
