Accent is on comedy in this Virginian episode where Doug McClure accepts a job for $100.00 to bring back neighbor Peter Whitney's young trophy wife from the old country. In fact John Qualen his former neighbor in Sweden has brought over several of his daughters and plans to settle further west.

A working knowledge of Swedish language and customs might have helped Trampas out in this situation. Young Katherine Cannon is pretty, blond, and most independent minded. McClure really earns his pay getting out of some scrapes with the Navajo and some wranglers.

A very funny story and McClure shows a nice adept comic touch in this Virginian story.
