Russell Ganaway


After Russel Ganaway is released from prison, he returns to North Fork intent on showing the people there that he is rehabilitated. Ganaway had been convicted of robbing the stage just outside of town some years before and killing the driver. Not all of the money was recovered and it is generally assumed that either Ganaway or one of the two men who helped him but were never caught still have the money. When his two accomplices show up wanting the cash, he desperately tries to lay the blame on someone else. Written by garykmcd

This episode had the humdrums.

This rather bland episode begins when Russell Ganaway is released from prison after serving a number of years. He had been involved in a stage robbery where five thousand dollars were never recovered. Ganaway has told everyone that he knows nothing about the money but this is not true. Ganaway makes his way to North Fork to retrieve the cash but before that can happen, two of his accomplices ride into North Fork knowing that Ganaway will lead them to the money.

Lucas just so happens to know Ganaway and gives him a job at his ranch so that the newly free man can prove to others that he has changed. This is going to lead to trouble when Ganaway, fearing for his life, tells his accomplices that McCain is holding the money.

For some reason this episode never seemed to stir much interest. Even with the shoot-out in the town street, the story could not produce much in the way of excitement. With some dry acting from the guest-stars and a very predictable script, this show appeared commonplace.
