The ending makes this a worthy watch
11 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dick Powell play a Sergeant Dravo that rounds up army deserters in the later 1800's. In this script he is tracking a young man, Johnny Harris, that has left his Fort and now has teamed up with a suspicious woman named Rose. The plan to get the deserter out of the west is to let him ride in a wagon and Rose will be his mate.

Along the ride in the wagon, it just so happens that the Sergeant hitches a ride and now the deserter is claiming to be someone else and that he is set to marry Rose. But the clever Sergeant knows that he has found his man. Along the wagon ride, we will find much about the characters that will make for an interesting trip.

Nothing really outstanding during most of the story but the thing that really stands out is the situation that Rose presents to the script. At the end of the episode the viewer gets a surprise that makes the entire production worth watching. Even if the story seems slow, wait for ending- you will be glad that you watched.
