    I almost didn't recognize Frank Ferguson as Rainbow Jack. Whoever did the makeup for this episode did a fantastic job. If I hadn't heard his voice on his numerous guest spots on Maverick and Cheyenne, I would have never figured out it was him. He does a great job here as Rainbow Jack. Heather Angel makes a guest appearance as Stephanie Collins. I really can't blame some of the fellas for not offering her to sitdown. I mean she wasn't a dog, but she looked to have been in maybe her late 40's-early 50's. I don't mean to sound like a male chauvenist pig, but when you've got other girls in their 20's and 30's running around, are you really going to look at a 50 year old? Anyway, the story was a good one about Rainbow offering her a stake and him turning out to be an eccentric millionaire. Then you have the slimeball nephew and schyster lawyer trying to swindle it away from them. That was pretty cool to see Rainbow punch the lawyer. I'm sure there are people all over the country that know a lawyer they'd love to do that to.moreless
