Trampas has his hands full with a posse more sinister than the fugitive he's pursuing, a rogues gallery that provides welcome distraction from episode's leaky plot and lean production budget. Preppy, clean-cut Martin Milner bucks off his stereotype by playing a duplicitous crook, George Kennedy and Jackie Coogan are a funny Mutt and Jeff combo as a couple of scrubby scroungers and Raymond St. Jacques grins maliciously as a ruthless bounty hunter who prefers to bring 'em back dead. Pallid Tab Hunter lookalike Steve Carlson, as the subject of the manhunt, was only fit to play a weakling, as he does here. Gene Evans suddenly turns up in a worthless subplot that's merely filler for threadbare story.
