Brief Synopsis:
(this episode was almost to the point of slapstick comedy)
Banker Nat Trumbull believes that his bitter rival Imogene Delphinia, owner
of the saloon and once his true love, has somehow engineered the robbing of
his bank and is sure that David Sutton and Trampas are in on it--especially
since David had ridden into town wearing the thief's clothing. (bj)

Some sources put this episode as an unsold pilot for another series
(presumably with Bosley and De Carlo). (bj)
