Found an old VHS tape at the flea market with 5 The Rebel shows that someone had recorded off their TV years ago - this show "Miz Purdy" is one of them. Nick Adams as Johnny Yuma who comes upon the bodies of two men and a woman murdered ruthlessly on their farm. He rides for help and stops at the next farm where he is held prisoner by a rifle wielding lone woman who is afraid he is one of the marauders pillaging the area. The lady is played by the always lovely Patricia Breslin who you may remember from Peyton Place but I remember from People's Choice 1950s TV show opposite talented Jackie Cooper. Always a great actress. In watching Nick Adams in these shows I've been impressed with his talent as well. Anyway, Johnny finally gets her to accept him and just in time as the marauders arrive at her farm. Sorry, can't reveal the ending, but great acting as in all The Rebel shows.
