Eli Snider (Robert Totten, doing his last "Gunsmoke" in a small role), a not-so-gentleman farmer, chambers a round into his rifle to back-shoot Talbot, a gentlemanly visitor who had just done Eli's wife a small favor. Warned by the sound of the rifle cocking, Talbot whirls around with a revolver and fires. Eli fires into the sidewalk and falls dead upon his gun. The stunned Talbot fully expects to get put away, but to his surprise Katherine clears him in a hearing. The grateful Talbot starts to pay court to Katherine and soon falls genuinely in love with her. But one part of Talbot's story is missing -- he was in Dodge in the first place to case the bank for robbing it, and his comrades don't intend to let his newfound mission deter them from theirs.
