Jess on the run
15 February 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode of Laramie finds Robert Fuller buying horses on a ranch when the other party reneges on the deal. Later on said other party winds up dead and Fuller has a posse with a lynch mob on his trail and a bullet in his arm.

A fugitive he takes refuge in the mountain hideout of Lyle Bettger who was once a respected sheriff and now an outlaw. Bettger is a bitter man with wife Dorothy Green and blind daughter Jena Engstrom. He's got to join the gang in order to stay alive and he might not anyway since some of the rest of the gang ain't crazy about him.

Lyle Bettger who is best remembered for playing some psychotic villains on the big screen The Greatest Show On Earth and Union Station turns in a good performance as a more sane type individual even regretting somewhat the life he feels forced to lead. A different kind of Bettger.

Watch and see how Fuller gets the chance and takes it to break with the gang.
