Roy notices strangers digging on an isolated section of his land. When he investigates, he discovers that the handlers for prizefighter Willie "Killer" Conley have set up a training camp for the champ. However, Roy begins to suspect that quite a bit more than training is going on there. Written by
In the second season of the Roy Rogers Show, Roy and Dale Evans had as a member of the cast, a future film legend acting under his real name of Charles Buchinsky. It wasn't much of a stretch for Charles Bronson who before he became an actor did do some prize fighting and it certainly showed in the boxing scenes.
The plot has Roy and Dale escorting Sarah Padden to the training camp of her grandson, Charles Bronson who is in training for a big fight. What he doesn't know is that the camp is being used as a blind by his handlers who are former convicts as is he. They recently robbed a bank and also are in that particular spot because they buried some jewels they heisted before going to jail.
Pat Brady was in their for some comic relief as always and he had some interesting scenes sparring with Charles Bronson. Years later I saw Bob Hope on one of his shows do a boxing skit with then champ Larry Holmes and this scene reminded me of that skit.
I'm certainly glad this episode was preserved.
