Storyline

Flint heads to Maddoxville to buy beef for the wagon train. On the way he finds a woman shot laying on the ground but alive. He takes her to Maddoxville to the doctor. Although the doctor's wife wants to turn her away, he treats her. Flint learns she killed Ben Maddox's son in her room behind the saloon. Maddox had sent his hired gun Jesse to catch Jane Hawkins to hang her but Jesse shot and left her. When told to bring back the body, Jesse can't find it so Maddox has him search the town. He learns she is alive and in the area but his men are forced to search for her. Flint who hid Jane decides Jane is not guilty so he enters town the next day saying he is her relative looking for her. With the information Jane provided and a critical detail provided by the doctor, Flint breaks into Maddox's house to confront him and his daughter with the truth. When the guilty party confirms his suspicions, Flint also confirms that Maddox is not interested in the truth but preserving his empire. ... Written by Anonymous

An interesting cattle buying trip
17 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After Frank McGrath complains of a lack of meat for which he needs to cook his infamous Charlie Wooster stew, Robert Horton goes on a cattle buying trip. The owner of the local Ponderosa is Edgar Buchanan and that is who Flint McCullough has to do business with. But Buchanan is not in a mood for business as his only son has just been murdered and he's given out orders to bring in saloon girl Myrna Fahey dead or alive.

And that's when Horton steps into this business when he finds Fahey on the trail more dead than alive courtesy of a bullet from Buchanan's hired gun Sherwood Price. He brings her to the town doctor Whit Bissell who patches Fahey up but insists she not stay in his place.

This whole town is under Buchanan's thumb, they don't even have a sheriff. He rules by decree.

In the end there's a showdown between Horton and Price and the rest of the gunslingers. Look to the Frank Sinatra film Johnny Concho if you want to know how it comes out.

Big kudos to Edgar Buchanan who usually plays folksy rascal types even when he's occasionally a villain. Here there's nothing folksy about him. But he's what you'll remember from this Wagon Train episode.
