James Templeton arrives at Shiloh with the stated intention of writing a story about Judge Garth due to interest back east in him as a territorial senator from Wyoming. He soon proves to everyone he is a man of man talents. He can ride bucking broncs, shoot fast, play the violin, dance, is well traveled, and heroic to everyone and especially Betsy. The lone exception is Trampas who has a dislike for him. A second man, Ray Harding, an attorney contacts Judge Garth about an old case the Judge ruled on and then fails at an attempt to blackmail the Judge about the case. Harding and Templeton are working together to scam the Judge but their ploy is not working.

User reviews



Dashing Steve Forrest wears the role of fortune hunter Templeton as comfortably as a tailored suit in this predictable but polished episode. Director Richard L. Bare tidily omits melodramatic hand-wringing, leaving plenty of room for the warm interaction among the series' regular troupe that viewers favored. Roberta Shore's Betsy takes center stage. When Templeton's blackmail scheme fizzles and he begins courting Betsy as a backup plan, the mature-for-her-years girl keeps her guard up. Templeton realizes she admires the gallant war hero he once was, and wants to forget, and not the cynical front he's presenting now. The long-suppressed nobility explodes to the surface in episode's breathtakingly swift, lethal finale.
