Rowdy eats crow and his regular crew might get no pay, because they show up late to a new owner's roundup. Trail boss Rowdy must complete this drive in six weeks or get no fee, plus the deal includes the rancher's foreman Lash as Segundo. The flexibility and principles Rowdy learned from Gil Favor, conflict with ramrod Lash's attack mode. Lash bulls the steer-men hard, makes good time, and plenty of enemies too, including starving Arapaho, who Lash drives off before they can even plead for some tender beef, for their families back at the reservation. The Arapaho warriors track the cattle drive, for the right moment to rustle what they need - by force. If they take tough old Lash too, Rowdy, nursing cracked ribs, won't mind.

This is pure Clint
20 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched many episodes of Rawhide and while Clint is good, you could see him getting better as the years went by. This episode is pure Clint Eastwood. Six Weeks to Bent Fork is by far the best written and directed and acted episode, by all actors in the episode, especially Clint. It's as if this episode was written specifically for him. Don't miss it, the end scene is pure classic Western. Raymond St. Jacques deals a good hand in this one also, and of course Wish is Wish. Clint is pure Clint! You can see how comfortable Clint is in the lead role after taking over for Eric Fleming. I miss Eric, but Clint took over for the final season, as far as I know, and went on to stardom. Clint is as smooth as ice in this episode. If you're a Clint Eastwood fan, this is a must see and must collect!
