Storyline

After rounding up the Morgan gang, Joe and Chad take in an orphaned Comanche boy. Being an orphan, they ask Parmalee to make him a Ranger. He is given various duties in the stable, office, and barracks. Chad and Joe tell Parmalee that they don't think the Morgan gang was stealing Greevy's cattle so Parmalee sends Reese and a couple of other Rangers to Mexico to look for them. Parmalee plans to send Chad and Joe out as well but when they report multiple well known outlaws and gunfighters in town he has them investigate. By the time nine of the men of shown up, they realize Greevy hired them. They convince Greevy his plan won't work and to send the men packing after paying them off. Greevy tries but Jug Herriot points out to the others it is nine of them versus three Rangers so they decide to take the town. The three Rangers end up needing a "little" more help.

Quotes

Jug Herriot: So here we are in Laredo and there's nine of us and three of them... and this town is ripe. Nobody ever tried it before because there were to many Rangers here, but there ain't too many Rangers here now and the border is just a spit and a whistle away. I say let's take it! Let's clean out the town! Hmm?

Grey Smoke
3 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When Captain Parmalee sends his Rangers out looking for rustlers who stole J. Pat O'Malley's herd, he's got a real skeleton crew on his hands when a whole crowd of gunslingers arrives in Laredo. It's only Philip Carey, William Smith, Peter Brown and a new kid Ranger that they've taken on board, Kurt Russell.

Russell is an Indian lad who has left the reservation and was running with an outlaw gang when the Rangers capture the gang and specifically Brown captures Russell after an interesting tussle.

Grey Smoke is Russell's character name and Carey enlists him in the Rangers as a runner/messenger, not unlike the way juveniles were recruited for the short lived pony express. But he proves to be quite an asset in taking down those gunslingers.

Kurt Russell blond hair had to be darkened to play a convincing Indian, makes him look a bit strange. It's a fun episode especially for younger viewers.
