A Detroit crime syndicate sets its sights on gaining footholds in New Prospect. Hec's first whiff of it comes from the death by arson of a poor farmer, one of three poor farmers who suddenly had a lot of unexplained cash to build oil wells on their lots in the last few weeks. Among the influx of visitors from Detroit (seeking to recruit/corrupt a trusted public figure), an attractive widow, who's trying to get away from it all, takes an interest in Deputy Ramsey.

Tipping the stagecoach driver $20 in 1902 would be the equivalent to tipping him $596.27 in 2020. Indeed, an excessive amount. See more »

Hec Ramsey: Yes, yes, ma'am, uh, but I'm gonna get over it very quickly.

Hec takes on the Mafia
18 March 2012 | by Tony RomeSee all my reviews

Some mobsters from Detroit come to New Prospect and try to buy elected officials. This is what I call the Mafia goes West. Richard Jordan is very good as the cunning, corrupt, devious mobster. Hec pretends that he has never heard of "organized Crime," and cracks a few jokes. This is one of my favorite Hec Ramsey episodes. This show had so many great guest stars. Why Universal never released this on DVD is beyond me, they failed to answer my letter. It is possible that there is a rights issue surrounding the show, possibly tied to Jack Webb's Mark VII company. ***** A well deserved DVD release has been in the waiting too long.
