In the made-for-television western CROSSFIRE TRAIL, “Rafe Covington” (Tom Selleck) promises dying friend “Charlie” that he'll watch over the man's wife, “Anne” (Virginia Madsen), and ranch after he's gone. Meeting Anne by accident, he discovers that everyone in town believes Charlie was killed by a Sioux warring party over a year ago - including Anne, who calls Rafe a liar when he tells her what really happened to Charlie. Certainly “Bruce Barkow” (Mark Harmon), wants that story to hold up. Owner of the local saloon, Barkow is intent on marrying Anne...and getting his hands on her ranch.

Barkow’s henchman, “Snake Corville” (Marshall R. Teague), knows the story is false, and the town's sheriff, “Walter Moncrief” (Barry Corbin), is bought and paid for by the evil Barkow. Aided by crotchety old sidekick “Joe Gill” (Wilford Brimley), Rafe, getting closer to the truth of why Bruce wants the ranch, must face not only the psychotic Barkow, but also his hired assassin, “Bo Dorn” (Brad Johnson), who's brought in from Kansas to settle the score with Rafe, once and for all.

Wilford Brimley once said, “I'm never the leading man. I never get the girl. And I never get to take my shirt off. I started by playing fathers to guys who were 25 years older than I was.”

Wilford Brimley was old when he was young. But his performances will never grow old. Farewell, Wilford.
