While attending Buffalo Bill Cody's Western Extravaganza, Det. Murdoch, Insp. Brackenreid, Constable Crabtree and Dr. Ogden witness a killing when a stunt apparently goes bad. The stunt involved one legendary wild west gunman shooting the other who catches the bullet in his teeth. It's all trickery of course and he's not supposed to be shot for real. Murdoch determines that the man was actually shot by someone with a rifle. When the second member of the stunt team is also killed, Murdoch starts looking into their past to find a solution to the crime. A horse hair provides the vital clue. Insp. Brackenreid's wife has joined the temperance league and he has promised to give up drink. An encounter with the flirtatious Annie Oakley puts an end to that. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Annie Oakley was married for the duration of her career (from the age of 16 until her death at 66) and was known to travel with her husband, who was also an exhibition shooter. It's very unlikely that she would have been so flirtatious, or that her husband would not have been present. See more »

Buffalo Bill Cody: [Realizing that Murdoch suspected he was lying about his poor eyesight] And you thought I was lyin'!
Detective William Murdoch: With all due respect, Mr. Cody, you've built a whole show around lies.
Buffalo Bill Cody: Well, people don't want the truth. No, sir, they want something else. They want a good story, and a good story told often enough... that can become the truth.
