TALES OF WELLS FARGO "Apache Gold" 1957

TALES OF WELLS FARGO was a western series than ran for a total of 200 episodes between 1957 and 1962. Dale Robertson plays the lead as Jim Hardee. Hardee is an agent for the stage and cargo hauling outfit. When something goes wrong he is the man they send to fix it.

This episode is the 17th of the series. Wells Fargo man, Hardee (Dale Robertson) is sent to Tucson to help find a lost man. The man, Dan Barton, is the son of a large investor, John Litel, in Wells Fargo Stock. It seems the lad has gone out into the desert hill country looking for a lost gold mine. Needless to say said mine is in the middle of the Apache lands.

Robertson, Litel and a couple more men, Myron Healy and John Dennis track the lad into the middle of nowhere. Robertson cannot shake the feeling that they are being watched. The further they head out the more the men talk about the millions in gold the lost mine is said to contain. They all get a glint in their eye for the gold. That is except for Robertson, he just wants to find the lost man and return to Tucson.

The bunch are soon losing members of their party. One disappears during the night and another is killed by an arrow. Robertson is all for leaving the area and returning to town. Litel insists they carry on.

They now stumble onto the lost mine. Gold is everywhere. Now another arrow comes out of nowhere, felling Litel. Robertson mounts up and races away. On the trail back to town he finds the missing boy. The two hit Tucson just happy to be alive.

In town they find another group of men heading out to try their luck in finding the gold. At the end of the episode the narration explains who was actually protecting the "lost mine".

The story and screenplay were supplied by the one and only, Sam Peckinpah.
