Jess Harper is on his way back to Laramie after a cattle sale when he stops to help a stranger involved in a gun fight with two men. The man, Cully Brown, is caught up in a gun battle with bounty hunters but he doesn't tell Jess. They are able to drive off the bounty hunters but Cully has lost his horse so Jess lets him ride double with him to a nearby town. They are enjoying drinks at a saloon when another man pulls a gun to shoot at them. Jess kills the man but is severely wounded in the head. They think he is going to die but he recovers only to find Cully switched identities with him and took his money from the cattle sale. Locked up, Jess is able to escape but finds himself involved in a deadly game of stolen identities, theft, jail breaking, and attempted murder as he tries to find the man who stole his name, his money, left him for dead and facing a hangman's noose.

Cowboy hero picks the wrong side
6 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Back in the day of the B western it was always a plot gambit to have the cowboy hero ride up and unerringly take the right side of someone outnumbered in a shootout. One reason I like this episode of Laramie so much is that in this case Jess Harper sees three guys shooting it out with David McLean.

Boy does he ever get it wrong. Later on one of those same bounty hunters spots Robert Fuller and McLean in a saloon and the guns start blazing. Fuller gets a scalp wound and when he wakes up he finds himself being held for murder and a $1000.00 bounty by the sheriff. McLean switches identies with him and a wallet which contains $500.00 proceeds from a sale of Sherman cattle.

The only clue Fuller has to go on was McLean remarking he was heading for a certain ranch. I won't say more because the plot really gets convoluted. Also McLean gains his trust again and nearly kills him this time. You'd never think Jess Harper is so easily fooled.

One of the best Laramie episodes.
