Storyline

The Virginian's friend, Benjy, finds a man Hobey Kendall attacking his wife and threatens to kill him after taking a shot at him. The next day the man is found dead after Benjy left his place. He proclaims innocence but is convicted and sentenced to hang. Benjy says a mountain man with the name Jonah McIntosh was there waiting for Kendall when Benjy left. A local search did not turn up McIntosh. The Virginian leaves to track down the mountain man Benjy says was at the site widening the search. The Virginian tracks down the man he is after, Jonah, but Jonah refuses to return as he committed the murder in self-defense. He plans to kill The Virginian but The Virginian escapes with Jonah as his prisoner. On the way back to Medicine Bow they run into many roadblocks and problems forcing them to ultimately rely on each other. Written by Anonymous

Serpentine mess
11 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dissatisfying episodes were not uncommon in difficult season four, and this mess, with its serpentine plot that grows sillier by the twist, is among the worst. Sturdy performances often propped up wobbly scripts, but the acting is part of the problem this time. Streetwise John Cassavetes is absurdly miscast as a bearded mountain man, and Drury stumbles over a feverish "mad" scene. Dub Taylor, Michael Burns and Quinn Redeker don't help either. Only Pilar Seurat, who is very touching as a soulful Indian maiden hopelessly smitten with The Virginian, provides any reward. Paul Henreid, former suave leading man in forties classics like "Casablanca" and "Now, Voyager," takes the blame for the direction.
