Throughout the course of the series it seemed that Bart Maverick would take an ill-fated stagecoach ride approximately every third episode in which he appeard. This one marks the first of several and it also marks the first of eight appearances on the show by Kathleen Crowley. Ms. Crowley usually played a conniving female and that's just what she plays here. Bart gets a good run for his money and manages to survive without the aid of brother Bret, who appears briefly. This frequently didn't happen when the situations of the two brothers were reversed.
