The Man from Laramie

Synopsis: Mysterious Will Lockhart delivers supplies to storekeeper Barbara Waggoman at Coronado, an isolated town in Apache country. Before long, he's tangled with Dave Waggoman, vicious son of autocratic rancher Alec and cousin of sweet Barbara. But he sticks around town, his presence a catalyst for changes in people's lives, searching for someone he doesn't know...who's been selling rifles to the Apaches.

I guess you're right about that.

- Good night, Mr. Lockhart.

- Good night, Miss Waggoman.

Miss Waggoman...


That shipment I delivered to

Is everything all right?

Yes, everything was there.

I just wanted to make sure.

- Good night, again.

- 'Night.


Do we fort up or run?

Just keep digging salt.

They're from town,

they're not Apaches.

- Who's running this bunch of thieves?

- These men work for me.

- What's your name?

- Will Lockhart. What's your name?

- That's the only introduction you need.

- That's fancy, what's it mean?

We're Barb riders and that's

Barb salt you're stealing.

- I was told this salt's free for the taking.

- It ain't. Not to strangers.

I was told wrong. If there's

any charge, I'll pay for it.

You can't buy your way out of this.

It's only salt they're taking.

It'd be different if it was cattle.

If we don't teach him a lesson, how

do we know what he'd steal next?

Any man says I'd rustle

cattle is a liar.

No need for that, Charlie.

And no need for your

gun either, mister.

Spud, let's see how good

you can use that rope.

Go ahead, Spud.

Jerk him down again if he needs it.

Burn his wagons!

I'll try your new model gun on your mules.

A man without wagons don't need mules.

- You want me to shoot those mules?

- Anybody invite them on Barb land?

Hold it, Dave!

- Come on, boys, let's finish the mules.

- Hold it, Dave.

I don't need any

help to finish this.

- You were told to stay out of trouble.

- I'm in no trouble, he is.

Trespassing and stealing salt.

You burned his wagons and

killed his mules over salt?

- Get out of here.

- Give me that gun.

Now get back to the ranch!

You're forgetting your place, Vic.

You work for my father. That

means you work for me, too.

I don't want to cross you.
