Gil Favor: On a trail drive, you pick your men to be at least as smart as the cows. The cows know enough to drink up when there's water, to stop and eat when there's food. The men can do that, too, but the rest of their thinking - man or beast - I'm supposed to do for 'em, whether I do it right or not. My name's Gil Favor, trail boss.

Farmers and horse thieves
26 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Rawhide story has the Gil Favor trail herd meet up with a group of farmers led by David Brian who have dug a lot of large holes in an effort to find an underground spring for irrigation. Giving up they ask for protection of the cattle drive to move out. But instead they help themselves to the reymuda and the drovers are left without horses.

At the same time Clint Eastwood has kind of taken an interest in Jean Allison who is Brian's daughter. Who just wants to get out of the valley is Brian's wife and Allison's stepmother Patricia Medina.

This Rawhide story kind of went off the deep end itself with Medina's portrayal of the wicked stepmother. Snow White's Maleficent has nothing on this crazy woman. It was so extreme as she ceases being any kind of believable.

Not one of the better episodes.
