Storyline

Travelling across the Arizona desert, the stagecoach conveying Bart Maverick and his companions is attacked by what appear to be Apache Indians. The passengers manage to reach the ruins of an adobe house and soon discover that the men besieging them are actually Mexican bandits who want something that one of the passengers possesses. As the broiling heat takes its toll, Bret attempts to discover which one of his fellow wayfarers is protecting a secret worth fighting, and possibly dying, for. Written by David Bassler

Goofs

In the opening scene the 'Overland Stage Line' stagecoach is a different coach to that attacked by the 'Apaches' (obviously taken from two different films!) and yet again to the studio setting coach from which the occupants appear following its overturning. See more »

One of the better ones so far.
7 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I genuinely enjoy this series, some are definitely better than others!

Starts out 4 people on a stage coach stop at a way station and encounter Johnny Balero (not a very convincing Mexican disguise to say the least!) and an angry Bart Maverick who had his horse stolen by Balero. Said horse is injured so they join up with the stage riders.

The coach is soon ambushed by what appear to be Apaches so the group takes cover in an abandoned adobe ruin. All is not as it appears and it turns out the 'Apaches' are actually Mexican bandits after some money that one of the passengers has. I won't ruin the plot any more than that but I will say it is a fairly gripping little drama. Very enjoyable!
