The Girl, The Cowboy, and the Hay Ride
In most cowboy westerns, there is a helpless pretty girl that the heroes need to save from the bad guys, but this adventure turns that on its head. Three cowboys and their buddies have just delivered some cattle to market and now they are on the easy ride back across the western trails towards home.
Meanwhile, a pretty lady is riding along the trail with a fellow in a suit and tie. The lady is obviously trying to get the attention of the man, and when he shows no interest, she gets her horse galloping wildly ahead and begins screaming for help. Of course, she is an expert rider and knows exactly what she is doing. She wants the man in the suit and tie to ride after her and ‘save’ her. Unfortunately, a couple of our saddle pals see the fleeing lady and rescue her before the dude in the suit can catch up.
Meanwhile, the lady drops her wallet, and after the dude and the lady ride away together, our cowboys find the wallet and set out to return it to the lady staying at the same dude ranch as the fellow in the suit and tie. Strange things happen as the lady and the dude in the suit get back to their hotel, and after a bit of this and that, the dude in the suit knocks on the lady’s door, but inside, the lady is not alone. Another man is in there with her, and he quickly hides.
When the dude in the suit enters, the man who is hiding comes out with a gun pointed at the dude in the suit, and the lady helps him rob the dude. Before we know what is going on, the dude who was robbed pulls out a gun and shoots the thief, and the thief shoots back. Unfortunately, our roaming cowboy is now outside her door with her lost wallet, and when he hears the gunshots he rushes in and sees the dude on the floor dead, with the fleeing man running away. He fires a shot at the fleeing man as the lady watches it all.
When the hotel manager and several others enter, our beautiful lady tells everyone that our roaming cowboy shot the dude in the suit, while the real killer rides away. Isn’t the pretty lady supposed to be the helpless one that our cowboys rescue? Sheesh. Now who is going to rescue our roaming cowboy who has been accused of murder while trying to return the ladies wallet? No good deed goes unpunished in this tale of the trail. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzle over it and enjoy the show.
