"The Way Back" is an exciting and suspenseful episode that features an all-star cast.
20 May 2019 | by FredFromFloridaSee all my reviews

"The Way Back" is an exciting episode that features an all-star cast and plenty of western action. The story begins with a wild-horse roundup, then plays out in a Western hotel, a jail, and a saloon. The ending features an interesting, albeit slightly expected, twist.

Dan Blocker makes his fifth appearance on "The Restless Gun", this time as gullible trail boss Olaf Burland. Burland has finally made enough money to return to his family farm in Minnesota, after being gone for six years. But saloon owner Jubal Carney (actor Morgan Woodward, who played "The Man With No Eyes" in Cool Hand Luke), and conniving cowboy Tom Quinn (actor James Coburn) have plans to separate Olaf from his $3000 bankroll. They enlist the help of alluring saloon girl "Dixie Starr" (actress Bek Nelson) to charm Olaf into removing his money from the hotel safe.

Lots of suspense! Will the bad guys get their hands on Olaf's money? Will the Marshall help or hinder their evil plans? What is Dixie Starr really feeling in her heart? Will Vint Bonner be able to keep Olaf from losing his $3000 bankroll?

I rate this episode of "The Restless Gun" a solid 10 stars.
