Josephine Hutchinson and Claude Akins bring this story to life.
18 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Worth Sweeney (Claude Akins) is part of the Segurra Gang that has just rob a back in Kansas City. During the robbery the gang broke up and three riders with Segurra going one way and three riders with Worth, plus the money, going another. They are to meet up later back at the hideout.

During the ride, Worth and his two friends happen up on a wagon filled with nuns. But when the two friends want to take advantage of the nuns, Worth steps in and kills both but not before getting shot himself. The nuns do all they can for him before taking him with them to Dodge for medical help.

But before getting on the trail, the nuns find the stolen money in a saddle bag and know that something is amiss. When they get to Dodge, they are told that a bank had been robbed and they now know that Worth is part of the gang.

But instead of turning the money over to the Marshal, the nuns remember the good Worth did for them and decide to let God intervene in the decision of Worth.

It is not long before Segurra comes riding into Dodge looking for the money. Worth knows that either his life or the nuns are in danger. Worth has two ways to go in this situation- will the nun's prayer work.

Two veteran actors really bring this episode to life. Claude Akins who played the injured, but goodhearted bandit and Josephine Hutchinson that played the older wiser sister. Both were excellent in their parts which makes for an entertaining watch for the viewer. An episode that was better than expected.
