A murderous band of outlaws bushwhacks an Army pay train and murders every man among them for the $200,000 in gold they are carrying. They throw open the pay chest and find -- lead. The leader scratches the lead with a knife and uncovers a gold streak, and realizes that the Army had amalgamated the two metals together before the pay train started to try to prevent just such an occurrence. So the leader and his men strip the dead soldiers of their uniforms and head for the nearest blacksmith's shop, which happens to be in Dodge. There they will melt down the alloy into pieces of gold, which they plan to distribute amongst themselves after leaving. Matt, who was off fishing, returns in time to catch the thieves in the act -- but is taken hostage and forced to help them. Features a rare view of Dodge City's outdoor back lot set for the final gunfight (in fact, the main characters watch the outlaws ride off the sound stage and onto the outdoor street!) Written by
