Cart Banner and Billy Neal rob the railroad station killing the clerk and stealing $4000. Cart flees the scene while Billy hangs onto the money but is also fatally shot. Before Billy dies, he makes it to Sally Anne's room in the saloon. When the authorities learn Billy died in her room, the railroad investigator believes she is involved and has the money which has not been found. She is a popular singer at the saloon and an old flame of Trampas. Three years earlier he had hoped to settle down with her when she left him without explanation. Jim Horn develops a strong relationship with Sally while Trampas tries to warn him she is unreliable. Trampas goes so far as to trying to separate them by sending Jim away to a line shack for a few weeks. Cart returns to Medicine Bow looking for the money and concludes she has it as well. After Cart rips her room apart searching for the money she decides it is time to leave but Jim wants her to stay with him. Written by Anonymous

Early feminist
13 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fairly edifying season eight closer rewards on several levels. On the surface, former glistening teeny bopper ideal Tab Hunter steals the show with his wildly-against-type portrayal of a filthy outlaw. More thought-provoking is the role of restless saloon chanteuse Sally Anne, played and sung with authority by Julie Gregg. Sally Anne refuses to tie herself to emotional commitments (which Trampas has learned and Jim Horn will soon discover), preferring instead to live hand-to-mouth in pursuit of her musical ambitions. Time has been kind to the character. Sally Anne's abiding devotion to her talent may once have appeared selfish but is now identifiably feminist.
