Parmalee takes Chad and Joe with him to help Erik and Reese make the delivery. Erik decides to scout for a second pass into the mine but is captured by the Sweet family. Step-daughter Billie Lou takes a liking to Erik unlike the boys. To prevent the Sweets from killing him, Erik suggests they ask for a ransom and when that fails to use him as a hostage.

Parmalee likes the idea but Reese who finds and outfits a sick wagon for the job contracts measles.

Sweet family values
12 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sweet Ellen Corby who played many a proper widow and spinster and most famous as the mother of the Walton clan gets to play another mother in this Laredo story. She's the mother of an outlaw clan known as the Sweets. She's a smart woman who doesn't miss much, but her sons look they might have a touch of inbreeding. Her daughter Kathie Browne is pretty and a bit smarter, but only a bit.

After a gun battle where they could not dislodge the Sweet family from a strategic pass, the Rangers decide a little deception might be in order. They use a sick wagon with measles patients to use as camouflage. Neville Brand comes down with the stuff and he's not a patient patient.

This one should be seen for Brand and Corby.
