To stop the MacCreedy-Armindariz feud from coming to a rope's end, Heyes and Curry ride to the aid of their former employer Patrick "Big Mac" MacCreedy, who is accused of murdering the foreman of his across-the-Rio-Grande neighbor Armindariz's ranch. In fact, MacCreedy only witnessed the shooting and has no idea who the killer is (viewers don't either; the killer is never revealed). While hurrying to help the dying man, MacCreedy saw a neer-do-well drifter (Neville Brand) swipe the man's rifle and take off with it. Heyes and Curry find that the drifter has gone to Tombstone, Arizona -- home to Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, who both play major roles in the story. They acquire a warrant for the drifter's arrest as a material witness, but it's not an extradition warrant. Thus they need to lure or trick the drifter back to Texas. To do so, they ask a lady friend named Georgette Sinclair who is what would later be called a nightclub singer, meeting her in Tombstone and letting her "woo" the... Written by Peter Harris

The plot of this episode is almost identical to that of an episode of the Virginian called The Exiles, where the Virginian must travel to find the real killer of a man back in medicine bow in order to clear judge Garth who stands accused of the crime. Just as in this episode, a girl who has arrived in the same town to start singing in a saloon, is told by a deputy to leave town or else! Both are written by Roy Huggins and he did often use screenplays from his previous shows in new shows if they needed a script urgently! See more »


Though El Paso, Texas, is fairly near the best route from Tombstone, Arizona, to Denver, Colorado (you'd have to turn south instead of north at Las Cruces, New Mexico), the stage that takes George and her boyfriend to Denver doesn't go anywhere near El Paso. Instead, it crosses a 100-yard-wide corner of the Texas Panhandle. To get to that spot, the stage would have had to make a detour of more than 90 miles to the SOUTHEAST while crossing northern New Mexico. See more »


Georgette Sinclair: There I was alone in Denver, not accomplishing a thing. So I decided to do something with my life.
Hannibal Heyes: In Tombstone?
Jed 'Kid' Curry: That's kind of a wide-open town, George.
Georgette Sinclair: I'm going to work in the Birdcage Saloon!
Jed 'Kid' Curry: George, you know how most saloon girls end up.
Georgette Sinclair: Fellas, I'm not going to Tombstone to work as a saloon girl... I'm going to become a chanteuse.
Jed 'Kid' Curry: A what?
Hannibal Heyes: [laughs] I don't know, Kid, but it don't sound good.
