Storyline

While Tom Fuller, son of Pop fuller, rescues Bronco from a watery grave, a rider brings mail to Pop at the cattle drive's camp and to see when the cattle will arrive at Solcito. One of the letters is for Tom from Molly Corley who now lives in Solcito. She was supposedly engaged to Tom but married John Corley. Pop tears up the letter but tells Tom about it when he arrives along with Bronco and the water they need. Tom decides to ride ahead to Solcito to see Molly against Pop's wishes so Pop asks Bronco to ride with him to keep an eye on Tom. Bronco joined the drive late as he happened to be headed to Solcito anyway. In town, Tom dumps Bronco to see Molly while Bronco looks up the local law handled by Judge Claymore as there is no sheriff. Bronco tells him he is working for Pinkerton looking for a man in the area. The judge tells him the man may be in a nearby town. Meanwhile, events lead to the bank being robbed, Tom jailed and escaping, John's murder by Molly and Tom taking the blame ... Written by Anonymous

Too many plot elements
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Things begin in a fresh and intriguing manner. Bronco tumbles down the steep, sheer side of an isolated, deeply-sunk water hole. He thrashes about in the water, wearing himself out, unable to find a hand-hold by which he might haul himself upwards. Slow death by drowning seems a real possibility.

Of course he's rescued and rather quickly, too, which is actually disappointing since this unique situation could have formed the basis for an entire episode. Instead it just leads into an account of a cattle drive heading toward a town desperate for the arrival of all that beef. And then the cattle drive sets up the story of a lovesick cowhand who's anxious to visit a woman in that town, an old flame, even though she's now married to someone else. And this romantic dilemma leads into a plot about robbing the local bank which, in turn, evolves into a murder case with a number of contrived twists. The episode eventually collapses under its own weight. It's as if they've tried to cram a number of story-lines into a single show.

Robert Reed (of later "Brady Bunch" fame) makes for a disarmingly clean-cut cowhand and Ty Hardin is his usual stalwart self even though he passes up several opportunities to take off his shirt. Maybe they just didn't have enough room left over for a bit of "beefcake."
