Two of Ben’s old friends are on different sides of the law. One is wanted and the other is a bounty hunter.

Trivia: This was Robert Wilke’s fifth and final appearance in the series. A character actor of primarily villanous roles, his big break occured when he appeared as one of the heavies in High Noon (1952). This led to work in higher-quality films. He worked extensively in television as well as movies, and became an enormously familiar face, though a fairly anonymous one to the general public.
