Reese is ordered to escort to nuns to an abandoned Catholic mission. They plan to convert the local Comanche Indians to Christianity. Reese, and later Chad and Joe, cannot convince the women of the danger, but little do the Rangers realize that their real peril will come from the outlaws that have hidden their ill-gotten loot under the mission chapel's floor.

Breaking the Habit
27 December 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Reese (Neville Brand), Chad (Peter Brown), and Joe (William Smith), argue about volunteering as escort for two of the Governor's friends. The Rangers are excited to help, when Capt. Parmalee (Philip Carey) reveals they are two French sisters. However, the women turn out to be nuns Barbara Rush (as Sister Williams) and Kristina Holland (as Sister Joan of Arc). The holy twosome want to re-open an old mission, but get into trouble with some nasty Comanches.

Despite the danger, the nuns insist on doing God's work, with Chad and Joe chastely watching over them. Reese does not stick around, after his opening scenes. The sisters manage to get some of the "Red Men" out of their Teepees and into the Church. Later, the facility is revealed to be where the "Ford Gang" has stashed some booty, leading to a Comanche/Ranger team-up.

Later, Ms. Rush shed her habit to become a regular on "Peyton Place", and Ms. Holland got a job as Bill Bixby's secretary on "The Courtship of Eddie's Father".
