  • Episode Description
  • Strip mining operations begin in the Medicine Bow area. While Judge Garth sees the mining as "progess" other locals see it as a threat to their way of life and also do not like the influx of polish miners. Amongst the miners' families is the beautiful Polcia (Ulla Jacobsson). A "love quadrangle" develops as three men desire Polcia: Jan (Dean Fredericks) the son of the leader of the miners, Jack Anderson (Don Galloway) the son of the rancher most opposed to the mining, and Trampas, who had been assigned by Judge Garth to assist the miners in getting settled and who is Polcia's true love. Fueled by ethnic sentiments events escalate into a series of conflicts and tragedies.moreless

    • This episode was released theatrically in areas outside the USA and Canada such as in Australia.

    • The episode was one of a handful of TV appearances of Guest Star Ulla Jacobssen. She is better known for her film work, which, although not extensive, included the female lead in Ingmar Bergman's film "Smiles of a Summer Night" (1955) as well as a major supporting role in "Zulu" (1964) as the preacher's (Jack Hawkins') daughter.

    • All the regulars save Steve Hill appear but the appearances of The Virginian and Betsy Garth are quite brief. Semi-regular, Sheriff Abbott (Ross Elliott) also appears.

    • This episode is one of the most serious, uncompromising, and consequently best entries in the series.
