Storyline

The Virginian and Belden are to go to Billings, Montana on Shiloh cattle business with Belden hoping to visit women he has met in the past. However, his saloon fight injuries - over a woman - keep Belden at Shiloh. On the way, The Virginian meets up with Ben Hunter and his group when they interrupt a holdup attempt on him by one of Hunter's men. Hunter invites him to his ranch where Hunter admits up until a couple of years earlier he had been an outlaw. He finds that Hunter is leading a protection racket that now covers a number of towns on the way between Medicine Bow and Billings, and that the people in these towns are cowed into paying him outrageous fees to keep their homes and businesses safe. When The Virginian is forced to kill one of Hunter's men, the citizens of Rutledge are ordered to turn him over to be killed and their monthly payment is increased from $1400 to $2000. Except for the daughter, Susan, of store owner, Stuart Masters, all of the citizens are willing to do so. ... Written by rbecker28
