Did You Know?


Jefferson Klingsmith: You want money for bringing men in. How much do I owe you?
Josh Randall: I expect nothin' from you, mister, but if you ever talk to me like that again, I'm gonna walk all over you. I dunno, maybe it's because you don't know any better, so I'm gonna tell you something, just once. Most towns have got sheriffs and marshals. We're a long way between towns out here. There's not much law. Men like Hod Kreiger are free to do what they like - pushin' people around, killing. Somebody's got to stop 'em.

A Long Walk A Pain-In-The-Butt
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

George Macready guest stars an an older Easterner teamed up with Josh on a long walk to Fort Apache. It seems those two and Josh's bounty hostage and stage rider were all ambushed by Apaches. The other two were killed while Randall and "Jefferson Klingsmith" ("Macready) were spared, for some unexplained reason.

They climb out of the burning stagecoach as the Indians leave and then have to weave their way back to safety....a long, long walk. That is complicated by more Apache attacks, two white bandits and the stupidness of the stubborn "Klingsmith" who won't listen to Josh and keeps getting both of them in more trouble.

Only in the end, of course, does the snobbish Easterner appreciate what a good man Randall is, in all phases including morals after our hero explains to him why is he is bounty hunter. It's a short but good answer.
