Summaries

  • When the drovers hear the horses agitated, they catch Straw Coleman in chains trying to steal a horse and saddle it. He feeds them story after story but never the truth. He and Wishbone recognize each other leading to Coleman quietly telling Wishbone to provide him with a horse and gun plus Wishbone must escape with him. As Favor prepares to have Colman taken to the Sheriff, Wishbone pulls a gun on the drovers, releases the horses, and leaves with Coleman. Favor and Mushy follow them trying to understand why Wishbone did it. Later as Wishbone cuts the chains off Coleman, a flashback recalls how they met. Coleman introduced Wishbone to Loreen Bouquet a dance hall can-can dancer in New Orleans. In a fight between Wishbone and a drunk Loreen was shot and killed. Coleman told Wishbone to leave town as Wishbone gave Coleman $3000 saved for a Texas ranch to take care of Loreen. Wishbone and Coleman reach a stage depot where Coleman has someone waiting for him. Wishbone believing he has been a wanted man for years, is confronted with his past as Favor and Mushy catch up with him.

  • Straw Coleman (John Dehner), fleeing the law, is apprehended by the drovers when he tries to make off with one of their horses. However, he has secret incriminating information against Wishbone, which he uses to force Wishbone to help him escape the drovers. Wishbone is also forced to accompany him. We learn that years ago in New Orleans, Wishbone and Coleman were acquaintances in the dance hall-gambling saloon where Loreen Bouquet (Sally Forrest) worked. Wishbone was courting her when a jealous admirer thrust himself upon them, and in the squabble a gun was discharged, killing Loreen. Coleman convinced Wishbone to give him Wishbone's $3000 to bury Loreen and handle the situation while Wishbone fled what was sure to be a murder charge against him. But it turns out that Loreen is alive and the whole thing was a scam plotted by Coleman, Loreen and the "jealous admirer" to swindle Wishbone out of $3000.
