Two Tall Men

10x33
May 8, 1965

Matt had business in Hayes City and asked Doc Adams to transport $1,500 from the Cimarron Mining Company, a reward they were offering for a bandit named Dan Perce, back to Dodge. Buffalo hunter Abihu Howell comes across Billy Yeager and Ned Moore robbing an unconscious Doc, chases them off, and brings Doc into Dodge. Festus and Breck Taylor take off after Billy and Ned. They find their tracks and start trailing them back toward Dodge; Festus convinced of their guilt and Breck trying to remain impartial. They soon find Doc's empty wallet in a campfire and both are convinced of their guilt. Once they catch Billy and Ned, and get the money back, they take them back to the Dodge City jail. With Doc still unconscious and near death, Howell gets drunk and embellishes on his eye-witness account, causing the citizenry to consider lynching the pair. Breck sends a local boy to find Matt and bring him back to town as soon as possible. Billy and Ned manage to escape, but get trapped in a warehouse

He Who Steals

10x36
May 29, 1965

Buffalo hunter Jeff Sutro, who does not hold with the new society that has come to the west, defends himself for stealing a calf and kills a ranch hand who drew on him. A jury finds self-defense and releases him. Ranch owner Jim Donner isn't satisfied with the verdict and fires one of his hands, Billy Waters, for siding with Sutro. Sutro decides to give up buffalo hunting and open a freight business, hiring Billy. While camping overnight, Sutro's Appaloosa horse is stolen and sold to cowhand Sid Perce. Sutro and Billy ride the wagon mules to track the horse and meet up with Perce, but don't believe he just bought the horse from the thief. Sutro sends Billy back to get the freight wagon and then kills Perce to get his horse back. Donner puts out the word in Dodge that Sutro's suspected of murdering Perce, in a successful attempt to put an end to his freight business. Sutro and Billy go

The Pretender

11x10
November 20, 1965

Frank and Edmund Dano arrive home after six years in prison for rustling cattle. Considering Frank the bad seed of the family, and the evil influence that got the younger Edmund sent to prison, Mr. Dano gives him a not-to-warm reception. Frank wants to leave, but because his mother is ailing with a bad heart, he stays at her request. As the situation deteriorates between Frank and his father, Edmund offers to tell their parents that it was he who was mixed up with the rustling and that Frank only got into trouble trying to get him out of it. Frank says no to prevent further disappointment for their

parents and moves to a farm house on some nearby land that his father purchased. Edmund takes up with Elise Howell, a clerk in the freight office. After $20,000 is stolen from the Garden City stage, recovered, and returned to the freight office, Edmund talks Elsie into helping him steal it. Things don't go as smoothly as planned and Elisie's employer, Mr. Daniels, get

The instructions in the note call for the Dodge telegrapher to wire all towns south, between Dodge and the Oklahoma border, and inform all peace officers to stay out of their way or they'll kill Matt. Festus has gone to Jetmore to pick up some horses and Doc and Kitty send Thad to tell him what's happened. When Thad catches up with him and they head out after Matt.

The Avengers

December 18, 1965

Thad goes to the marshal's office to get Festus (Matt's out-of-town) and tells him there's a problem at the Long Branch. When they get there, Kitty tells them she got rid of the two brothers that were drunk and disorderly. As her and Sam are closing up, Sam takes a crate of empty bottles to the cellar and Kitty goes up to her room. Waiting there is Richard Strom, one of the brothers, who gags her and starts beating her. A window breaks in the struggle and brings Festus, Thad and Sam running. Richard Strom shoots Festus and is killed by return fire. Several days later Oklahoma judge Calvin Strom shows up in town with his two remaining sons, Mark and Cal, Jr. (the one that was with Richard the night of the shooting). Judge Strom wants charges brought against Festus for murder and against Kitty for conspiracy

to commit murder, but Matt refuses and orders the judge and his two sons out of Dodge. That night Mark ambushes Matt and puts a bullet in his leg while his fa

The Raid (1)

11x18
January 22, 1966

Les McConnell, posing as a gun salesman, is the front-man for the Stark Gang. He's gone into Sedalia, Missouri as the advanced scout for a bank heist. The gang rides in and robs the bank, killing the bank manager. They get away and later decide to hit the bank in Dodge, even though McConnell advises against messing with Marshal Dillon. The leader, Jim Stark, dismisses the warning and sets the gang's path toward Dodge. McConnell goes in ahead of the gang to check things out. The bank gets robbed and, as the gang is riding out of town, they run headlong into Matt and Festus. Some of

the gang members are killed and one is severely wounded. Doc is kidnapped and taken along to tend him. Matt starts to put together a large posse to chase the gang down, but McConnell has other ideas.

The Raid (2)

11x19
January 29, 1966

After the Stark Gang robs the bank in Dodge, front-man Les McConnell sets several buildings on fire to prevent a posse from pursuing the gang. Matt leaves most of the men in town to battle the flames and takes only Festus and a handful of others to pursue the gang. The gang stops at Mr. Early's ranch and gets fresh horses. When Matt and his men arrive Early tries to obstruct them and send them on a false trail, but one of Matt's men finds the real trail. With very tired horses, they press on. Coming upon another ranch they find that the gang has once again acquired fresh horses and a wagon, but this time the rancher wasn't their friend; he'd managed to hide three horses from the gang. Matt and Festus take the fresh horses and continue after the gang. When they catch up to the what's left of the gang (some were wounded and died, others were killed due to internal squabbles) a

gun battle erupts, with Doc in the middle of it!

Zavala

14x3
October 7, 1968

Good western. Mostly action, not too much girl stuff. Gunplay by Dillon very very good in this one. Story is about Dillon taking a warrant into Mexico. He finds the culprit and outdraws him. One of the latter's gang members travels back to the US and tells Jim Davis that Dillon killed his brother. Davis responds with violence, then rides into Mexico and faces Dillon. The human interest part of this movie centers about the likeable Mexican kid, ""Paco"". Dillon and him get along so good that I'm wondering about the sexuality of one of the film bosses. About Rico Alaniz... top-notch performance. He's the guy who, in the movie ""Magnificent Seven"", was always saying 'no, don't anger Calvera, give him what he wants"".
