Most heroes of TV westerns wound up playing a "stripped and whipped" scene in at least one episode. Case's turn came in "The Deputy" on March 12, 1960, in an episode titled "The Border Between." He was tied to a post, bare-chested, and lashed across the back by an angry Leo Gordon who suspected him of trying to steal his woman. Though it occurred on TV, this scene ranks 40th in the book: "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies."
