Gil Favor: There's money in beef, but it doesn't come easy. There's a market for all the steers you can raise. But it's a thousand miles away. You get top prices only for top cattle. Pushin' the herd up the trail is only half the job. You've gotta get in there in good shape. It takes tough men workin' long hours for low wages, starin' trouble in the face at every bend in the trail. I'm one of 'em. Gil Favor, trail boss.

too sugary, coincidental, clichéd, unbelievable
3 January 2012 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

I loved the "Rawhide" series when I watched it as a kid. And I know that these Western stories are "morality plays," that one should gulp a strong dose of "suspension of disbelief" to enjoy them. However there has to be a limit. This episode was an embarrassment -- so saccharine and filled with corny clichés and unbelievable actions and coincidences. Most of the Westerns I have seen that involve Indians are like that.

Among the many things that disturbed me here included:

¶ Favor, riding alone, just happens to encounter and rescue the Indian chief who resides with the "captive white girl" the bounty hunter who joined the cattle drive was after. ¶ the white captive girl having the identifying jewelry with her initials. ¶ Favor endangering the herd, all for the sake of one white "captive," who may have wanted to stay with the Indians anyway. That annoyed me the most. ¶ Favor forgoing the $8000 reward (huge for the time). ¶ the Chief willing to fight to keep the "captive white girl" (his future bride-to-be), then encouraging her to return to her white family after she returns to him. ¶ Favor, and others, riding off alone in wilderness away from the other trail hands.
