When Paladin escapes from the saloon with the gambling stakes, Dever looks out the door after him and yells, "He dropped the gun!" The next scene shows Paladin climbing on the camel and then dropping the gun, well after Dever said it happened. See more »

Quotes

Paladin: You're a strange mixture, Kane. So far you've gotten what you want without violence, without really breaking the law. But you're being pushed now, and I wonder what that'll do to you.
Billy-Joe Kane: When I want moralizing, Mister, I'll hire me a preacher.
Paladin: No, you won't. There's no immediate profit in it.

Have Camel, Will Travel
20 February 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Palladin takes on a survival contest in the Mohave desert that no man has ever won before. To give himself an edge, he brings along a surplus army camel and when he discovers local businessman Billy Jo Kane (Lawrence Dobkin) owns the town's water rights, and is selling water at $1 a gallon, he makes that part of the bet against his $5,000.

Boone is at times funny and cold blooded in this episode. Palladin senses the greed and blind stubbornness in Kane and pushes him to make a bet that he'd probably be better off not making. The episode is helped by the appearance of Claude Akins as one of Kane's henchmen (Akins would later co-star with Boone in a 1973 episode of "Hec Ramsey") and Mayberry's favorite drunk, Hal Smith (he played Otis) as the proprietor of a restaurant that gets the locals together to hire Palladin.
