After taking young Skip Wade (Keir Dullea) to court for vandalism, Redigo determines to make the youth a useful citizen.
A wanderer with a chip on his shoulder is placed in Jim's custody, and the drama centers on the young man. Ironically, he's got what Stoney Burke looks for every Monday — the rodeo championship belt — and that's the root of his troubles. Keir Dullea sustains his character very well, the first half has the action, and the second the romance. Incidentally, they are supposed to be writing the women out but Sharon Farrell could hardly pass for a man.
