The foreman of a neighboring ranch frames Joe for murder as part of a scheme to get his employer’s property when the owner can’t pay his taxes.
Trivia: Royal Dano (Jeffers) makes his third and final appearance on the series. Dano provided the voice for Disney’s audio animatronic Abraham Lincoln in “Great Moments with Mister Lincoln,” presented as part of the State of Illinois pavilion during the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. It was later turned into the “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” attraction at Disneyland. He has also voiced Lincoln for the “Hall of Presidents” at Disney World. His voice is still in use today.
