"Disneyland" Four Down and Five Lives to Go (17 Oct. 1958) Robert Loggia, Robert F. Simon, Lisa Montell
Three men come into town and the town residents move out of their way. The three bust into the sheriff's office. They, however, have not come to cause trouble but to turn themselves in. The leaders is Squeaky and the two other are the Baker boys. They have had others to turn themselves in. But one of the guys, a prospector named Grubstake Charlie, writes back saying if the sheriff wants him, he can come and get him. Elfego comes up and captures the fellow. He lets him go when he promises not to shoot anyone unless they are shooting at him. He agrees.
Carter Wingate show up again. They are looking for a robber/murderer. They say he is headed for Frisco, New Mexico. His name is Sin Verquenza (without shame). He has seven notches on his pistol.
Elfego arrives in Frisco. He goes over to the festival where everyone is dancing. He sees Anita dancing with a white fellow named Jim Spears. Elfego asks for the next dance. The two dance together. Elfego tells Anita to dance with the odd looking man if he asks. He thinks the man has a pistol in his shoulder holster and he wants Anita to find out. He does have a pistol with him. Elfego stops the dance by asking the band to play a different tune. This makes the man angry and soon Elfego and he are fighting. Elfego wins, but then learns that this is not the man. (His gun has no notches at all.) Elfego apologizes to the man.
Elfego hears that a robber has stole a horse and forced a woman to ride with him. He goes after him. He meets various people who have had bad run-ins with the man. Some white men say he was headed for the mountains where the Indians are. Elfego goes into the mountains. He suddenly is surrounded by Indians. He asks to be taken to their leader and they do so. Elfego is told that the man he describes has already passed through their lands. The braves then show Elfego the path that he took and the sheriff heads after his man.
Elfego finds a campfire that is still warm, so he knows he's close. He finds another campfire along with a horse. Elfego starts to sneak up on the camp, when a man gets the drop on him. It turns out the fellow is just a soldier with the cavalry. He talks to Elfego until he is who he says he is, the sheriff of Socorro County, New Mexico. The soldiers tells the sheriff that the man he is after is gone now. The border is just a mile away from where they are now. Elfego says he will cross the border and go after his man. He tells the soldier not to worry, for he will only arrest the man when he has gotten him back across the border.
Elfego rides into the town of Las Animas. He see the huge horse that the eyewitnesses said Sin Verquenza has been riding. The stable boy says the man who owns the horse is in the cantina. Soon after Elfego comes into the cantina, one of the guys leaves. Elfego follows him. But he gets on a different horse. A white guy comes out and says the buckskin is his horse. He bought him just now in the cantina. The fellow was in a hurry and took off. Elfego sees the man riding away. He follows him. When the guy spots a man following him he takes off at a full gallop. He even shoots his pistol at Elfego.
He gets off his horse to bushwhack Elfego. The two men shoot it out amidst the rocks. Elfego grabs a rattlesnake and throws it at Sin Verquenza. The guy panics and Elfego captures his man. They are riding back to the border when the Federales (federal troops) come their way. Elfego says they are going to beat the Federales to the border. They cross the river into the United States. A member of the Safety Committee (vigilantes) says they may be coming for Sin Verquenza. Elfego warns him not to, because he won't let a prisoner of his be taken from him. Meanwhile, a killer in the cell with Sin Verquenza tells him that they can overpower the guard and escape. He has some men ready to help him.
Elfego confronts a mob of his own people. He talks the men out of trying to take the prisoner by force and they leave. The white man knocks on the jailor, gets the keys and lets himself and Sin Verquenza out. The white guy also shoots the deputy sheriff. Elfego hears the shot and goes to check it out. Meanwhile, the white escapee runs to his friends who have a horse waiting for him. Sin Verquenza will have to steal himself a horse. They find the deputy sheriff and the jailor dead.
An unsanctioned posse takes off after the escapees. Sin Verquenza gets behind the sheriff and shoots at him, but somehow misses. The murderer finds a hiding place and stays quiet. A town resident volunteers to help the sheriff. He goes one way and the sheriff the other. When the citizen runs past him, Sin Verquenza runs to his horse. At the same time Elfego comes back, both men shoot at each other and both are hit. Sin Verquenza tries to get on the horse, but dies in the process. Elfego is still alive.
The Safety Committee fellow comes to see Elfego. He says they chased the white escapee into a valley. He was just about to shoot at the escapee, when someone shot the prisoner right in the forehead. Elfego says that it was undoubtedly Grubstake Charlie. Elfego is really cheered up when Anita comes to visit him in his bed. But his heart is crushed when she tells him that she has fallen in love with Jim Spears. He agrees to see Jim and congratulates him. He pretends to his friend Martinez that he is not upset by the loss of Anita.
Baca resigns his position as sheriff. He gets on the stage to go to take his bar exam. He tells his well-wishers after he passes the bar, he will come back and open a little law office.
