A hen-pecked rancher, in San Francisco to marry his housekeeper, hires Paladin to help him get out doing so. For $1.000 he wants him to help break up the holy bonds of matrimony - before they can be forged. What he attempts to do is not quite what either of them had bargained for. Written by
Lesson number one - never touch a man in desperation, in anger or in fear. A real woman, a proper female kind of woman tries to perpetuate the legend that her touch is as rare as a fine jewel. That it's given only to a very special person at a very special moment.
That doesn't make sense. It's not even practical.
Lesson number two - forget all about logic.

Young weak-willed rancher Thad (Carey) begs Paladin to get rid of his tyrannical housekeeper Lydia (Browne) since he hasn't the nerve to do it himself. He thinks she's demanding that he marry her in order to get a share of his wealth and the ranch.
A tongue-in-cheek entry like this is likely a matter of taste since it's played mainly for laughs. I liked it mainly because actress Browne is so good at being both a sharp-tongued shrew and a gorgeously coy femme-fatale. Her scenes with Boone are unusually engaging. Also, catch Paladin's tussle with husky ranch hand Clyde. When sheer strength fails maybe acrobatic deviousness will do. Good light-hearted fare.
