Quotes

Gil Favor: Whenever you hear a fella tellin' you about how he rode with a trail herd of five, ten thousand steers, you can call him a liar. The most any crew can handle and keep safe is about three thousand - the size of this herd. With the hazards of weather, terrain, stampedes, and Indian raids, that's plenty.

Dear old dad
5 January 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode of Rawhide has the drovers picking up young Tommy Nolan who is on the cattle trail searching every herd for the father he's never met. Dane Clark is on the herd, but he's got his reasons for not revealing himself. Nolan goes to work helping Robert Cabal with the reymuda.

There are others in the neighborhood. Harold J. Stone and his group of horse 'traders' who might be interested in the reymuda. Stone is not a man who looks real hard at brands when he trades. And there are Comanches who steal for fun and profit.

There are some real nice scenes in this episode with Nolan and Clint Eastwood as Nolan kind of bonds with Rowdy Yates as a substitute father figure.

Clark has a lot of issues and he takes a while to resolve them.

A nice more family type story than you normally see on Rawhide.
