Michael Landon is excellent in this change of life story
4 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael Landon guest stars in this excellent episode. Landon plays Will Fulton a 19 year old member of a gang that has just rob a bank in a nearby town. As the four bandits, lead by Will's brother Hank Fulton, ride near the McCain ranch they hear cries for help. Mark McCain is clinging to a ledge and is about to fall. Will goes to help Mark and in the process breaks his leg. Hank carries Will and Mark back to the McCain ranch where they leave Will and will be back later to pick him up. In the meantime, Lucas will help his leg mend.

While staying with Lucas and Mark, Will sees a different way of living and wants to get out of robbing banks. But will his brother let him leave the business.

Very good episode for show three. Was enjoyable from start to finish. Good show.
