A man with a lame horse hears gunfire, heads toward it, and finds a dead body with a rifle which he takes. The Virginian is called into Medicine Bow to find that Judge Garth stated he was ambushed and killed the man who fired at him. The Sheriff found the man shot in the back and unarmed so the Judge will have to be tried. The Sheriff was unable to track the man with the lame horse, so The Virginian goes after him and learns he went to North Bend, Montana. On the train to North Bend he meets Angie who is hoping to be a singer there. The Virginian finds the man, Ralph Slocum, but he denies it and refuses to return to Medicine Bow. A deputy tries to force Angie to leave town by threatening her. As her only friend The Virginian helps her find who is behind the threat. A man Angie knows stole money from his wife and ran off with Angie's friend. In return Angie helps The Virginian trap Slocum into traveling through Wyoming and recover the rifle to clear the Judge.

Did You Know?


The plot of this episode is almost identical to that of an episode of the Alias, Smith and Jones called Which way to the OK coral? where the the boys must travel to find a witness to a murder in which their boss has been accused. Just as in this episode, a girl who has arrived in the same town to start singing in a saloon, is told by a deputy to leave town or else! Both are written by Roy Huggins and he did often use screenplays from his previous shows in new shows if they needed a script urgently! See more »

Crucial evidence
15 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode of The Virginian finds James Drury on the trail of a man who stole some crucial evidence at a killing. To wit, a rifle with which a bushwhacker tried to gun down Judge Garth. Lee J. Cobb fired back and hit the bad guy in the back. Someone came along and stole the rifle the bad guy was using. So the judge is on trial for back shooting.

The whole thing seemed kind of far fetched. As forensic science hadn't been invented it seems like any old rifle could have been used and served as evidence. It was Ed Nelson who ran off with the weapon and James Drury tracked him to Montana.

In North Bend Montana Drury makes common cause with Tammy Grimes, an entertainer who has come to sing at Frank Cady's saloon. Someone from her past is gaslighting her and making threats through the sheriff's deputy.

Some nice gaslight era songs are here which Tammy Grimes sings. Grimes and Drury kind of help each other with their problems.

Tammy's singing is the main reason to watch this episode.
