Prairie Springs "The Town Of Friendly People"
2 November 2006 | by pepe-46See all my reviews

Thats what the sign read as Cheyenne Bodie headed into town looking for work. Stopping off at the saloon to get a square meal after a hard day's ride, he was kinda surprised to be told to move on by a ranch foreman by the name of MacDonald backed up by his ranch hands.

MacDonald, played menacingly to good effect by screen heavy LEO GORDON, does not convince our hero to hit the trail and later corners Cheyenne in the Livery stable. Outnumbered, Bodie succumbs to the flying fists of his adversaries.

So I guess it seems that Prairie Springs is not so friendly after all, but you can't keep a good man down and this just strengthens Cheyenne's resolve to find out what gives and to pay Macdonald back in kind.

From this point on the story begins to unfold, and the reason for MacDonald wanting to keep Bodie away becomes only too clear!!! An enjoyable oater, but what has Cheyenne done with his sidekick Smitty, he does not appear in this episode?
