Laramie Shadows in the Dust (1959–1963) Online

Slim Sherman, appointed special detective by the Cattleman's Association, to investigate a spate of rustlers stealing cattle with Sherman Ranch being one of the most recent victims. After one of the rustlers takes a shot at him but misses he heads to Edgerton for help but the Sheriff is unable for a couple of days. He finds himself on the trail of Jean Lavelle and her longtime helper Gimp who have been stealing cattle from the larger ranches as payback. Another rustler Ralph who joined them is responsible for the theft of the Sherman Ranch stock and putting a determined Slim on their trail. In a shootout with Jean, Slim is wounded but captures her anyway. Slim risks his life, determined to take Jean to Cheyenne to stand trial and minimize the risk of her being lynched back in Edgerton, all the while being trailed by Gimp and Ralph plus the sheriff of Edgerton along with his deputy. With his bullet wound festering, it is questionable whether he and Jean will make it to Cheyenne alive. {locallinks-homepage}

Susan Oliver guest stars in this Laramie episode as a female cattle rustler who shoots Slim Sherman when as range detective he finds who's been rustling his and other cattle. Oliver's companions in crime are Francis McDonald and Dennis Patrick, the latter a particularly mean sort.

I'm sure the viewer as well as John Smith noticed how nicely Oliver fits into those tight blue jeans. Even with a bullet in his arm that she can't dig out the two are attracted. I guess you know where that is going to lead.

Truth be told Slim Sherman probably would have lost that left arm it being so long unattended and the state of medicine post Civil War being what it was. Still this an exciting Laramie episode with a wounded and weak John Smith protected by Susan Oliver.
