Storyline

Colonel Alan MacKenzie arrives from England as Shiloh's new owner. Right away he faces his first challenge when a young struggling small rancher is lynched, allegedly because of rustling cattle from one of the larger ranches. Another was lynched just before MacKenzie's arrival. MacKenzie locks horns with other members of the cattlemen's association, who believe that extraordinary measures are needed to deal with rustlers, and due to his strong disagreement the colonel is beaten. Meanwhile, the lynched man's sister and young son are staying at Shiloh for their protection, especially as the boy may have witnessed his father's hanging though he has now gone mute due to shock.

Revamped, renamed series opens for season nine with spaghetti western theme music, a broad, black hat for The Virginian, a mustache for Trampas and a new owner for Shiloh in the person of Col. Alan MacKenzie, a rugged ex-British army officer (played by former MGM swashbuckler Stewart Granger) with a fresh set of principles for running a ranch and the resolve to back it up with his own fists and firearms. This leaves an awful lot of down time for Drury and McClure, a fact noticed by series fans concerned that too much had changed. Potentially action-filled story goes in a calmer direction, but with compensatory sizable parts for screen beauties Elizabeth Ashley and Martha Hyer.
