The Young Englishman (1958) Poster

Lucas loses a calf and suspects a neighbor's foreman. As it's already been branded, he's threatened with rustling if he uses a rope. McCain has another way of cutting the newborn out of the herd, and he doesn't need a rope or his rifle.

| Nobody messes with the McCain cattle.
In another fine show, a small McCain calf has ventured onto a ranch owned by some British upper class and run by a rough foreman named Norv Waggoner. Mr Waggoner decides to take the McCain's calf and add it to his own herd. It just so happens that one of the British kin, Jeremy Ashford, just happens to be visiting the ranch and knows that Waggoner is rustling cattle but is forced to go along with the ruse. When Lucas comes out to talk with Ashford, he advises that he needs to see Waggoner. Needless to say the visit with Waggoner does not go well.

Lucas is bound to get his calf back and takes the mother cow over to Waggoner's herd. In no time they find the calf but Waggoner and his men are not going to let Lucas leave so easily. And things get even more complicated when Mark rides up right in the middle of a gunfight.

There is nothing that is really remarkable about this show. However, the story is a basic western script that is well written and well performed. The one thing you take away from this episode is the special relationship between father and son which made the series so entertaining. Another fine episode in season one.
