This episode of Wagon Train focuses on guest star Jack Kelly in The Fenton Canaby Story. The former Bart Maverick plays a role far different than the dapper gambler who used to rely on the aphorisms of his wise old Pappy.

Kelly was a former wagon-master himself whose last wagon train was massacred and he was accused of deserting it. Chuck Connors as Jason McCord in Branded had a much easier time of it than Kelly. When John McIntire's wagon train finds him, Kelly is out on the desert living like an animal.

Of course Kelly is shunned by everyone on the train, but he later proves useful in getting across the desert country as he's gotten familiar with it over the past few years as no other could. And in the process we do learn what really happened to him.

It was a well acted story and the sight of Kelly as something akin to a Bigfoot monster is fascinating and repellent.
