Storyline

The eastern constable Clendon MacMillan has come to Texas to teach the dirty and untrustworthy Texas Rangers how to use modern police techniques to stop crime. Parmalee sends MacMillan out with the three rangers to stop Running Antelope and his gang from raiding and burning local towns. Chad and Joe tease Reese about how good a tracker MacMillan is. Running Antelope has some men look for the posse and attack it stealing Reese's horse. The rangers catch one man and take him to a nearby town where the gang has just hit and Linda Little Trees has been caught. While the Sheriff and the three rangers have dinner, MacMillan questions Linda and decides she will lead him to the gang. In reality she leads him in circles and takes him prisoner while the other three rangers track them. They learn why Running Antelope stole a cannon and ammo for it and MacMillan shows off his "new methods" as a captive. Written by Anonymous

The Rangers need to modernize
30 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Martin Milner guest stars in this Laredo story, a very hilarious one about a big city policeman joining the Rangers to teach them modern crime fighting techniques. Captain Parmalee is somewhat reluctant to have him join the team, but if his three favorites can learn anything so be it.

His debut isn't impressive. After Neville Brand has fallen into a mud puddle and is looking rather disheveled, Milner proceeds to expound on the fact in primitive Texas you are forced to hire a lot of people dirty and unqualified. All of them hate Milner, but Brand's hate is in a class by itself.

Milner never really showed a flair for comedy until this Laredo episode. Usually he's cast as callow youths in his salad days and later on as professional types. Here he's a Dudley DooRight sort and the Rangers especially Brand just enjoy seeing him make a fool of himself.

Billy Wilder favorite Cliff Osmond plays the Indian outlaw they seek, Shelley Morrison is his squaw. Seeing her make a fool out of Milner is priceless.

Lots of laughs in this one.
