You Can Leave Your Hat On
Brian Keith is Yellowleg . . . . A Yankee Yellowleg Sergeant in the Civil War . . . . His yellow legs ran from war instead of fighting and dying.
Before he could get back home, a fellow from the South caught him and fought him and pulled out a big scalping knife and nearly scalped the top of his head off.
Now he roams the Southwest searching for the man who nearly scalped him. He is no longer yellow . . . . He is filled with hatred and visions of revenge . . . He fears nothing now . . . And after five years of searching he found the man who scalped him.
Yellowleg walks into a bar for a bit of whiskey and he discovers a man being hung . . . . Well . . . . Almost being hung. A card cheater has a rope around his neck, and his hands are tied behind him, and he is standing tippy-toe on a barrel . . . . The second that he loses his balance and the barrel rolls away, he will be hung.
Yellowleg is only mildly interested in the man until he sees the man’s hands tied together behind his back . . . . There are teeth marks in the man’s knife hand, and when Yellowleg sees the teeth marks he jumps into action.
He will fight the whole bar if he needs to, but he will prevent that man from dying with a rope around his neck. Yellowleg wants to kill that man himself, and he wants the man to know who is killing him.
Yellowleg will befriend the card cheater and the card cheater’s buddy and wait for his chance . . . . He will carefully plan the method of confronting the man who scalped him and giving him a slow, torturous death.
Unfortunately, he will need to face other dangers before his confrontation with the man who tried to scalp him.
He will encounter bank robbers, Apache Indians on the warpath, and most dangerous of all . . . . Maureen O’Hara, as the dance hall widow Kit Tildon. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
