Casual post
19 August 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Three army deserters bust the stockade at Fort Dayton and Captain Chris Alcaide goes on the Ponderosa to find them. The three attack Pernell Roberts and now have his six shooter at least.

Alcaide really thinks his uniform entitles him to walk all over people. Not the Cartwrights and surely not the Ponderosa.

One guy his captured quick, the other two Joe Maross and Grant Williams take refuge on Gloria Talbott's neighboring ranch where Maross worked before.

The post is what you call a 'casual post'. It's set aside for army misfits. Sort of a malignant F Troop.

Maross is a real bottom feeder, Williams is a former officer with a mysterious past.

In the end truths are revealed to the whole cast in this interesting story.
