Episode: The Trial Of  Chrissy Miller

Role: Hargis

A young Robert Fuller portrays the part of cowpoke Hargis, wrongly accused of assaulting Chrissy Miller.  The girl’s reluctance to explain why she was home late causes the townsfolk to jump to assumptions and seek justice on her behalf. As the accusations reach a crescendo and it looks as if the young ranch hand may face a lynch mob, the truth is finally revealed by Chrissy’s young friend, ten year-old Jody.  It is fascinating to watch Robert transform the happy-go-lucky Hargis to a man desperate to prove his innocence.
