"You look like ready money, Musgrove".
26 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the "Stories of the Century" series wound down, the outlaws of the Old West depicted became less and less well known to the general public. This was the last episode bringing a two season run to an end. L.H. Musgrove was primarily a horse thief and if you follow TV and movie Westerns, you know that rustlers usually came to a bad end.

In this story, Musgrove (John Archer) uses a stolen herd as collateral to buy a piece of property. You have to marvel at what things cost back in the day, as the asking price on a hundred acre spread with a ranch house (nothing fancy of course) was a mere fifteen thousand dollars. This sounded like a pretty good buy and hold strategy if you figured on being around for a while.

In any event, Musgrove provides the bank officer Blair (Charles Evans) the number of a bank in San Antonio to check his references, then turns around a forces the telegraph operator to rescind the wire. When the agent resists, Musgrove shoots him and carries a phony letter of reference to the bank himself.

Railroad Detective Matt Clark (Jim Davis) and partner Margaret Jones (Kristine Miller) split chores on the investigation with Jonesy looking into the murder of the station agent, while Clark heads off to the Musgrove ranch posing as a horse buyer. He blows his own cover by uncovering the altered brand on one of the horses, but manages to overcome a Musgrove henchman using a reliable karate chop to the back of his neck. Matt chases down Musgrove and makes the apprehension, only to learn shortly after that a judge released Musgrove on bail. Not taking kindly to this, a citizen's vigilante committee hung the outlaw without further ado.

Historically, Musgrove met his fate in virtually the same way, except that a vigilante mob sprung him from jail and then hung him. Either way, the result was the same.
