Searching For Mexican Gold
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
6 November 2006
This is an odd story. Josh is hired to find Mexican gold in the desert.
The story starts with some punk trying to shoot Randall, but Josh
subdues him. He finds a wanted poster - $1,000 for Josh Randall, wanted
by Sam McGarrett - inside the guy's hat. The thug (and a partner)
aren't bounty hunters, just some greedy guys who want money. Anyway,
Josh investigates and finds out McGarrett (Victor Jory) just made up
the poster to so that someone would bring Randall to him. Josh has a
good reputation and the man wants to hire him. It seems a Mexican boat
full of gold 100 years ago had big problems and the gold wound up in
McGarrett keeps upping the ante until he gives Randall an offer he
can't refuse, $5,000 to lead them to a cave where the gold supposedly
Josh, the old man, his son (played by Michael Landon!) and daughter
head out into the desert. The woman wimps out early on so they leave
here at some ranch and the three of them go on. There is tension
between the father and the son, one of those deals where the kid can
never measure up in the father's eyes. You just know that will change
by the end of the episode.
The final part is action-packed as the good guys are followed by the
thug and his partner and are ambushed. How they fare, and whether they
got the gold.....you'll have to watch.
Overall, nothing super but a decent episode and a different-kind of
story. Warren Oates is also in here but they didn't put the "e" on the
end of his name on the ending credits. I guess Oats is more appropriate
for a western!
