Silver City, New Mexico, is a quite little town devoted to the arts. For example, there's the art of the dance, as practiced nightly in the concert hall of the Bella Union. Large numbers of citizens less interested in the arts devote long hours to self-improvement. Altogether, Silver City is a fine little town. If you have the strength.

This is the one with the enigmatic title. Bart is playing poker at the Bella Union and plans to buy half the hotel when a showgirl steals his money and heads to Mexico. Karen is the Norwegian can-can girl, and Bart follows her south of the border. A fiesta marking the death of the traitor Judas is in progress. There are fireworks, and a big statue of Judas is burned. People wear masks, and there is dancing. Bart finds Karen and demands his $20,000. She does not have it. She deposited it in the Wells Fargo Bank before leaving New Mexico. Ladies man Bart uncharacteristally gets rough with Karen. She takes a liking to him. The Mavericks are not businessmen or hard workers, so it is a stretch to believe Bart would buy into a hotel.
