The Conductor


Shiloh ranch hands catch three men and a girl stealing horses. One of the men is killed by Steve but the others are taken in. The girl, Billy Jo, is the young daughter of the ring leader. The sheriff decides she should stay at Shiloh to prevent problems. While trying to break a horse, Randy bruises his spine resulting in paralysis from the waist down. Billy Jo is assigned the task of helping Randy with his exercises to try and recover. Although initially antagonistic with each other, they develop a closer relationship until Randy feels there is no hope for recovery. Her comments, however, persuade him to attend a local dance and catches the eye of the doctor who feels she would make a good nurse. Her father still exerts influence over her persuading her to supply him with a gun. He and his partner escape jail and arrive at Shiloh expecting to pick up his daughter and extract revenge on Steve for the death of his brother. Written by Anonymous
