Sugarfoot takes a job as a school teacher and finds larger students can be trouble
One of three shows I found on a video tape at a yard sale, this one is The Wild Bunch but has no similarity to the movie of the same title. Tom Sugarfoot Brewster (Will Hutchins) arrives in a new town to accept a job as legal assistant to the local lawyer. The lawyer's daughter (lovely Connie Stevens) makes eyes at Tom right away. With no job to be had he accepts the one-room schoolhouse teacher's job where for some reason, previous teachers don't stay long. First day on the job he finds out why when three boys as big as he, cause trouble, led by the largest (a young Troy Donahue). Sugarfoot goes out to Troy's ranch to talk to his father who turns out is damming up the water for the whole area which is driving people out of town. The trouble is mostly caused by Donahue's cousin (played by Ray Danton) who arrived a couple of years before and has been instigating trouble ever since. Plenty of fights and gun play. Well written and acted and much better than the usual TV western.
