A man with a lame horse hears gunfire, heads toward it, and finds a dead body with a rifle which he takes. The Virginian is called into Medicine Bow to find that Judge Garth stated he was ambushed and killed the man who fired at him. The Sheriff found the man shot in the back and unarmed so the Judge will have to be tried. The Sheriff was unable to track the man with the lame horse, so The Virginian goes after him and learns he went to North Bend, Montana. On the train to North Bend he meets Angie who is hoping to be a singer there. The Virginian finds the man, Ralph Slocum, but he denies it and refuses to return to Medicine Bow. A deputy tries to force Angie to leave town by threatening her. As her only friend The Virginian helps her find who is behind the threat. A man Angie knows stole money from his wife and ran off with Angie's friend. In return Angie helps The Virginian trap Slocum into traveling through Wyoming and recover the rifle to clear the Judge.

Hat in the Long Grass
14 July 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

A well dressed stranger in a suit comes across a dead man and when he stops to investigate finds the dead man has been shot in the back. He tries to get the dead man's horse but the horse takes off so he goes back and gets the dead man's gun.

Later the Sheriff tells Ramrod and Steve that the Judge has had a another, but this time fatal, run-in with a well known adversary resulting in the Judge being under suspicion of murder.

The Virginian (Ramrod) finds out that a Ralph Slocum has sold the horse of the dead man and caught a train out of town so likewise catches a train to follow to North Bend Montana.

On the train a husky voiced woman named Angela, who says she's is a singer, asks to sit next to Ramrod as a fatherly type is accosting her. Later at North Bend she is apparently told by an unknown deputy to leave town on a non-existent 3 o'clock train!
