Storyline

A mine cave-in traps Simon and Quince, after Rowdy sent them in to check out the shaft's stability, before the drive ventures through the ravaged mountain pass adjacent. In the quarry, a bear-like creature attacked Quince, then Simon's gunshots at the beast caused the cave-in. Cowhands Ed & Jerry, who aren't pulling their weight on the drive, come forward with a way to free the drovers before they perish from gas. Ed already scavenged gun-jell from the abandoned mine camp, and claims to know how to blast the rubble away - but only for a $500 fee. With no other help close enough, trail boss Rowdy agrees.

Cave-in
9 September 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Clint Eastwood has picked up a pair of new trail hands who aren't pulling their weight in Bruce Dern and Claude Akins who really aren't much use. Then Raymond St.Jacques and Steve Raines get caught in a mine cave-in and it turns out that Dern at least has some experience with blasting gel.

Delicate stuff that gel and Dern is holding up Eastwood for an additional $500.00 to blast Raines and St.Jacques from the cave-in. Eastwood has no choice.

Dern and Akins are a strange pair. Imagine the characters of George and Lennie from Of Mice And Men with George having a malevolent twist of mind.

Eastwood and Dern later worked together on Clint's film Hang 'em High. The dynamics here are similar to what they were on that big screen film.

That makes this Rawhide episode worth a look.
