Ben helps hunt down an ex-con he helped convict of bank robbery five years before, when the bank is robbed again. The man claimed he was innocent the first time and had nothing to do with the latest robbery.

Trivia: This was Warren Stevens’ (Bregan) third of four appearances in the series. He was a close friend of the actor Gregory Peck.

This was Bruce Dern’s first of two appearances in the series. He has the distinction of being one of the few actors to have killed John Wayne on screen in The Cowboys (1972). He even received some death threats out of it. Dern is the father of actress Laura Dern, from his marriage to actress Diane Ladd.
