Bounty hunter George Wolfe arrives in Medicine Bow to receive information on a man with a $5000 bounty on his head for murder. However, the man is killed in a wagon accident during a rain storm while being helped by Trampas and two men. Wolfe must wait until the man's bank lockbox is opened in two weeks. He suspects someone and especially Trampas may have killed the man to protect his identity. Trampas believes it is him due to an old charge against him for a robbery and murder he didn't actually commit. The Virginian persuades him to stay at Shiloh but in meantime a typhoid fever epidemic breaks out tied to strawberries washed with contaminated water. The local doctor is busy finding the source and handling the sick. Wolfe himself is struck down by the fever while stalking Trampas who takes him to Shiloh where the doctor tends to the hard hearted Wolfe. The lockbox is opened and Wolfe finally learns who the man is he is seeking but it is not Trampas. Written by Anonymous

Who is it Broderick Crawford is seeking?
28 August 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Shades of a classic Audie Murphy western and my personal favorite of his films No Name On The Bullet. Broderick Crawford is a bounty hunter in town who has a lot of people nervous with his presence. He's no idealist about law and order just in it for the dough. Among the people who think it might be him and Crawford thinks Trampas might actually have information on whom he is seeking is Doug McClure. There's an old murder warrant out on Trampas, a trumped up charge from years ago in Nebraska, but Trampas is ready to cut out.

Also going on which has people even more concerned is a typhoid epidemic which has Roberta Shore among others sick. The typhoid epidemic and Crawford's hunt intersect and whom he wants is revealed.

Nice performances from the regulars and from Crawford and Arch Johnson who is the doctor fighting the typhoid.
