Quotes

Gil Favor: On the Sedalia Trail, the weather's like a Texas woman: contrary and full of little tricks to keep a man off balance. No use tryin' to outguess either one of 'em. If they give you trouble, all you can do is pray for a change, hope for the best. I've had a passing acquaintance with both. Name's Gil Favor, trail boss.

A Great Episode for Eastwood Fans
13 September 2014 | by uber_geekSee all my reviews

Wishbone gives Rowdy money to purchase 150 replacement cattle before Mr. Favor returns. (Now as to why you would purchase more cattle, unless you think you'll make a good profit on them in the end is a bit odd to me as you're going to lose some on a trail drive. But maybe something happened to lose that many that they don't know want Mr. Favor to know about.)

Rowdy comes to a town where the saloon seems to be more of an English pub and Rowdy quickly becomes a fish out of water with their expressions and mannerisms. When asks about the whereabouts of the man, Ashley, who is the owner of the herd he wishes to purchase, he is told Ashley won't sell the cattle to him. Undaunted, he runs into Ashley's daughter Laura (played by the exotic looking Debra Paget) who has heard of his interest and is eager to make the sale so she and her father can travel back to England. She takes him to their home, which is a huge Georgian style mansion.

Ashley turns out to be a very nice English gentleman who welcomes Rowdy to his home, but who seems unwilling to sell him the cattle without talking to his foreman, Winch (played by John Ireland). Ashley, however, insists on Rowdy dining with them and staying the night. Since the herd will meet them near there, he reasons business discussions can come later. There's a very funny scene where the butler insists on helping Rowdy dress for dinner in a loaned black tux and white tie while his own dirty clothes are being washed and *shudder* pressed!

From there, the show becomes a mystery of what hold a foreman has over the old gentleman. I won't give anything away because it's well worth watching.
