Traveling with the Wagon Train on this trip west is Burgess Meredith, daughter-in-law Nancy Gates and grandson Edmund Allen. They look just about like any other pilgrims except that Meredith is escaping from the law.

Seems that back in Boston he set off a bomb that killed his boss Byron Foulger. Think of Bob Cratchit killing off Ebenezer Scrooge with a similar device and you get the picture.

But it's still murder and there's a detective on the Wagon Train played by Marshall Thompson. He's got to ascertain and apprehend. But he's a lonely guy himself and he falls for Gates.

As for Burgess Meredith he's having a great old time paying court to widow Lillian Bronson. He also fancies himself an inventor of sorts and he and Frank McGrath have a great old time inventing a kind of air conditioner for the wagons. When McGrath tries to drive his wagon, the Rube Goldberg invention falls apart in a hilarious sequence.

Still there's the law to be faced and to see how that's dealt with you have to watch this fun and somewhat whimsical Wagon Train story.
