It's a Rowdy Yates episode with the support of Jim Quince. Actor Clint Eastwood really shines in many scenes: you recognize his actor's idiosyncrasy. The plot that highlights this actor vehicle is about two mean bandits robbing a bank and kidnapping a priest while the small town believes the holy man was killed by a wandering stranger hence a posse of rough armed men arrest Yates and Quince at the beginning but as the story unfolds and progresses we're witnessing a travel story about faith through three women: a couple of nuns—whose one is young and lack of self-confidence about her destiny—and a fancy paid jezebel. The outcome has the lost feel of the great 50's drama.

It's a Mushy episode that deals with his family. We learn the real name of Mushy (Harkness Mushgrove III), that he doesn't know reading. The real plot starts when the mother of Mushy traveling on a stagecoach is ambushed by bandits willing to steal her family medallion and she unmasks one of the hoods by accident. Later on, the outfit of Gil Favor decides to help Mushy to make him a hero in front of his mother in order to stay with the drive and that's when the trouble starts… The three bandits spoil the whole scheme by intruding to avenge. Act 1 features the voice-over narration of Mushy, instead of the usual Gil Favor.
