Storyline

Decoys, misdirections and deceptions are the order of the day as Hannibal and the Kid get a taste of the other side of the robbery business when they are hired to transport $50,000. To add to the confusion, throw in a very naive, idealistic young woman as a love interest and possible thief. Written by David Foss

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry's story credit probably comes from his writing the episode of The Virginian (1962) that this show is adapted from. Roy Huggins produced both shows and (especially during the first season of "ASJ" when the scripts were written in a frantic midseason rush) grabbed stories from his earlier series and handed them off to teleplay writers (he almost always heavily revised the draft scripts).

More Twists & Turns than the Mississippi River ~
6 October 2015 | by fjalexiiiSee all my reviews

To begin with - neither my wife nor I have seen any episode of this show since it originally aired over 40 years ago when we were teenagers. We both loved it, and bought the complete series last week on DVD.

I just finished watching this episode, and for viewers who also enjoy Perry Mason - this one's not hard to figure out by the 36-minute mark. The fun is in getting there. Our heroes are hired to bring some - well...a LOT of - money from one town to another, for the only consideration of furthering their cause with the territorial governor about their amnesty. They're pursued by a determined gang of disgruntled creditors who lost their monies (the monies the boys agreed to transport) when the local bank failed. Take it from there.

Throw in a 17-year-old girl riding the rails who can tell a yarn as well as Hannibal Heyes, and a minor appearance from Alan Hale (Gilligan's Island's "Skipper") and this makes for an entertaining hour.

As Jim Hutton's Ellery Queen would say - "Think you got it figured out, yet? - let's find out!"
