Indian woman at the Dodge House does not set well with locals
Everything is fine as Big Dan Daggit checks into the Dodge House. But when the clerk, Dobie, gets a look at Big Dan's Indian wife he is up in arms that an Indian women is staying in his hotel. And when Marshal Dillon refuses to throw the two out in the streets, Dobie begins a vocal campaign to rid Dodge of the Indian woman that is the daughter of an Indian chief that raided the prairie not long ago.
One evening two men come for Ms Daggit and take her out to the prairie. In a classic way of saying she was sexually assaulted she gets her point across by saying they ripped her moccasins off while she was blind-folded. Needless to say Big Dan is set on killing the two men even if it means hanging.
A well acted story as Peter Whitney and Angie Dickinson played the Daggits' to near perfection. The really odd part is that for some reason the caustic Dodge house clerk, Dobie, seemed to squeeze his way into nearly every scene even when Ms Daggit was taken to Doc's office for examination. But even with that odd occurrence the show was entertaining as the Daggit's set to find the two men by means of listening to footsteps. Good watch.
