Episode Notes
Guest star Steven Ritch would later pen ten episodes of the series.

Tom Tryon's chest was shaved for his bare chested scene to emphasize his character's affinity with Native Americans as most of them do not have hairy chests.

Episode Quotes
Adams: (to Martin) In case your Mr. Hanford don't know it, I'm not runnin' a marriage service out here.

Ann: Don't you think it's kinda silly for me to trapse off in the middle of the night?
Mark: My father has his ways but I guess you've already found that out.

Flint: You talkin' about ridin' into the Cheyenne camp?
Hanford: I'm talkin' about takin' what's mine.

Fint: (to Hanford) What good's a dead wife--even in a red dress?

Flint: (to Mark) Now I understand. It's not your father you hate, it's yourself.

Hanford: (to Mark) Somethin' you better understand too. I don't ask for quarter and I don't aim to give none either.
