The Claim
AIRED:
Trampas becomes discouraged with being a ranch hand and sets off with an old friend, Luke Milford (William Shatner), to Deadwood City in the Dakotas where gold strikes are reported. They learn that most of the gold is off limits in Sioux territory but they meet and help a man named Finley (Strother Martin) who claims to have a gold strike outside of Indian land and who agrees to cut them in if they will stake him for equipment. They do strike gold but it turns out it is on Indian land. Trampas runs into trouble not only with the Sioux but inevitably ends up in a showdown with Luke who has become fixated on finding and retaining the gold.moreless

      • The town set which served as "Deadwood" in this episode was used in several episodes. For example, it also served as "Eagle Rock" in the later Season 4 episode entitled: "Show Me a Hero" and as "New Hope" in the later Season 4 episode entitled: "Men With Guns."

      • The device of having Trampas somewhat bored and disenchanted with ranch life and leaving for some excitement which is used in this episode is a recurring one. It was also featured in the Season 1 episode entitled: "West".

      • The plot of this episode bears more than a passing resemblance to John Huston's film "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948) and this is surely not accidental.

      • Trampas, The Virginian and Randy Benton are the only regulars to appear in this episode.
