Storyline

THRUSH wants to gain control of a mineral known as Tri-Tanium D, which when processed can be used in a lethal death ray. The only known location of this mineral is the ghost town of Furnace Flats in Death Valley. Furnace Flats is owned by Mesquite Swede a grizzled old prospector who dies from a heart attack shortly after an attack by THRUSH. His will stipulates that the town will go to whichever lady can duplicate a famous ride through Devil's Domain made by Death Valley Flossie. A race is setup between April, Dolly X (a THRUSH agent) and Ladybug Byrd. The identity of Mesquite Swede's daughter could also be a factor in determining ownership. Written by tomtrekp

Perhaps the greatest cat fight ever filmed for television
9 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are only two residents in Death Valley, Mesquite Swede(the reliable Percy Helton) and Packer Jo (Peggy Lee in a great Mae West impression.) When Mesquite dies, his will stipulates that the property he owns will go to whomever recreates his mother's famous trek across the desert. Three people enter the race, April Dancer (Uncle), Dolly X (THRUSH), and Ladybug Byrd (for you 1960's fans, think Lady Bird Johnson.) UNCLE and THRUSH both want the land because of a valuable mineral is contained there. Ladybug has her own motives. Herb Edelman gives a great as always performance as Dolly X's THRUSH companion. Mark Slate has little to do except to trade sexual innuendos with Packer Jo. Ruth Roman is a great villain; she should have been allowed to return as a recurring character. The reason I gave this episode a 9 because the weaponry was silly, as was the opening shoot-out.
