Slim Sherman and Jess Harper are in Jackson City to buy cattle from George Lake. Arriving in Jackson City late at night they enter the saloon where Jess runs in an old friend named Mason who has changed his name to George Lake. When he reneges on the deal, it leaves Slim steaming mad and ready for a fight. After a scuffle Slim leaves the saloon to go to the hotel but when a shot is heard, he is found standing over the body of George Lake. The sheriff refuses to investigate as circumstantial evidence points to Slim as the murderer. Jess is Slim's only hope to clear him of the murder. The puzzle gets only more convoluted with a odd assortment of characters all looking for a Durango cavalry spur that is purported to contain a map to the fabled Lost Dutchman Mine. Lake was murdered for it and the only man that can clear Slim wants it. With everyone double-crossing everyone else, Jess has to find the spur if he wants to save Slim. He just has to live long enough to do it. Written by DarSpi

More stuff that dreams are made of
29 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Although Jess Harper is looking to get a living partner out of jackpot as Slim Sherman stands accused of murder instead of Sam Spade avenging the killing of Miles Archer the parallels between Robert Fuller and Humphrey Bogart are too striking to ignore.

The nice thing about about a television series taking its episode plot from a famous book or film is that you can pretty well figure it out, but you love seeing how the characters are drawn. In this case the acting award goes to Robert Emhardt who is having one great old time as the garrulous fat man in pursuitZ of a hollow silver spur containing a map to the fabulous legendary Lost Dutchman mine.

Karen Steele as the femme fatale and George Keymas as the trigger happy gunsill round out the cast of would be fortune seekers.

Again looking for the stuff dreams are made of.
