Episode Summary

Death Valley Scotty
Telling for the first time the true facts about Walter Scott who became a flamboyant Western legend while he lived, this story reveals the answer to a puzzle that baffled the nation for almost half a century. In 1905, a desert-weathered character calling himself "Death Valley Scotty" slaps a wad of $1000 bills on an astonished railway executive's desk and charters a train to break the speed record between Los Angeles and Chicago. As Scotty's "Coyote Special" roars across the plains to a new record, the electrified nation fixes on him an attention that he is not to relinquish for decades. Tossing money around like confetti over the years, strutting, colorful Scotty just laughs when he's asked where it comes from. He hints of a hidden gold mine in Death Valley, but refuses to reveal its location. At last, he builds a "castle" in the Valley - an Arabian Nights structure costing $2,500,000. But the gentle, heart-warming "secret" of Scotty' s wealth is not revealed in his lifetime. (Synopsis from "Death Valley Days" official site)moreless
