Ex-lawman Jim Cole retires to Wyoming to farm his land, but a land-greedy neighbor, an ex-con turned bounty hunter, and a vicious grizzly bear upset his retirement plans.
Joseph Pevney also directed several episodes of Star Trek (1966).
He's got the heart of a cougar and he can out-think any man.
When being warned about the Grizzly, "Old Satan," Big Jim responds that "a Winchester .44-40 ought to take care of him." The .44-40 is a large bore pistol cartridge still popular today for which the Winchester Model 1892 lever action rifle was chambered (the same rifle used by the Rifleman) but it is far too light to be reliable against an animal the size of a Grizzly. No hunter would ever voluntarily confront such an animal with a .44-40.
