Gil & crew reach trail's end in Sedalia, but Gil's hard drinking is not to celebrate: his fiancée has married another. Waiting for one drover is his own beautiful fiancée, closely tracked by a short-tempered bounty hunter. Gil's approached by another trail boss with a local ranching opportunity. Will Gil return to Philly, stay in Missouri, or meet his men at Chickenfeather Siding for another drive ?Written by
One of the drovers a pretty woman is waiting for in Sedalia at end of the drive has drowned crossing a river on the trail. In a strange coincidence actor Eric Fleming, who played trail boss Gil Favor, drowned in a South American river while filming a movie several years after Rawhide ended. See more »
The drive is over and the drovers are ready to be paid and to party hardy. Sedalia
and its people and law enforcement are ready for them and there are a bunch of
stories in this episode.
The most serious are that of Eric Fleming who was planning to go east to Philadelphia to visit a woman he was courting. Only she up and married another
and says so in a Dear John letter. Clint Eastwood in defending a woman whose
got some dubious honor to defend has to kill a man. The town's a bad mood.
Usually these stories are told from the town point of view. As Rawhide is about the men who work cattle drives there's a different angle here. But
these guys when they cut loose are a rambunctious bunch.
