Storyline

Duke Shannon stops over in the town of High Times, and almost right away gets into a fight with, and accidentally kills, one of the gunmen who are essentially holding the town hostage. Then he finds his horse missing as well. Everyone advises or demands that he leave town, but he decides not to, especially when the only one willing to help him and stand up to the gunmen is a crippled young man who is too liable to get hurt or killed trying to do so.

Totally cowed
24 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Denny Miller stands alone in this Wagon Train episode where scout Duke Shannon rides ahead of the Wagon Train into the town of High Times. Of which there hasn't been much in a long time, ever since the mines closed and the sheriff killed. After that an outlaw gang headed by Stanley Adams took over and made the town their headquarters.

Adams's gang killed the sheriff and crippled his son Dennis Hopper. They've got the rest of the town totally cowed and when Miller accidentally kills one of them the only one that will give him any help is Hopper.

This episode borrows elements from High Noon, Johnny Concho, and Firecreek. Hopper will move you considerably as the crippled kid who is the only one to stand up to some really nasty outlaws.
