Featuring Festus playing off Heckart
21 October 2019 | by ebertipSee all my reviews

Festus decides to accompany a school teacher on a three day ride. Athena (played by Heckart) speaks Kiowa to fend of an Indian war party but is taken in by the evil Yawker family, the people who stole from the Kiowa. Manuel Padilla, between roles in Tarzan and American Graffiti, can identify the Yawkers. As the story progresses, Athena sees that Festus was correct about the danger she faced. Athena says: you are a remarkable man. A foreseeable ending with Wyandotte porridge. Token appearances by Doc and Dillon toward the end.
