Lady Bounty Hunter
18 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jan Sterling guest stars in this episode of Wagon Train as a female bounty hunter who has quite the reputation in her profession as looked down on for women as well as men. She tries to travel incognito with her backup H.M. Wynant, but Terry Wilson is mighty suspicious after he rescues them from scavenger outlaws.

She's about to make the arrest of her life on the Wagon Train. Claude Akins who leads a group of pacifists who are all former criminals has an outstanding warrant on him. And she has a very personal interest in him.

Jan Sterling is a woman on a mission and she plays the part with intensity. And Claude Akins who now has a son, Billy Hughes, for once isn't playing a thug or a psychopath. A nice change for him.

This is a good one to check out.
