Quint has to protect the Colonel's daughter from renegades
30 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is an episode that lets Burt Reynolds capture the screen and sizes him up to be the beefcake of the 'Gunsmoke' series.

After completing heavy work for the army, Quint is in need of a break. So he rides shot-gun for a stagecoach heading south. On the stage there is two men, the driver and Colonel Pate's daughter named Lavinia.

Lavinia is a beautiful young women that has disdain for Quint riding on the stage. Since Quint is part Comanche, she feels like he will side with the Indians over any white person. And with the Indian raiders causing havoc along the plains, everyone is uneasy.

The Indians are raiding because white renegades are providing them with money for their loot. With the money then they can buy guns. Quint has already told Colonel Pate if you stop the renegades it will stop the raids. But the Colonel is more apt to stop the Indians first.

Anyway during the ride the renegades stop the stage hoping to get the woman, Lavinia, so they can trade her in Mexico for money. But Quint outsmarts them. He takes Lavinia away from the stage at dark and dresses her up in Indian clothing. When the renegades come across Quint and Lavinia they think they are Comanche Indians and do not want to start a problem with the rest of the Indian tribe. So they let them go.

But later one of the renegades comes back to take the squaw, Lavinia, away with him. Without weapons of any sort Quint has to do something in order to get Lavinia back to her father.

Burt Reynolds steals most of the scenes with his manly approach to all the problems faced. But he also has to share the screen with the beautiful and stunning Andrey Dalton who is at her best in this episode. Nice Watch
