This episode of Rawhide sees racial tensions explode between White ranchers and Comanche Indians. When Joseph (Michael Ansara, a Comanche, is hired by a short-handed Rowdy Yates (Clint Eastwood) for a cattle drive, his presence catalyzes racial tension within the camp that heightens with the arrival of Colonel Macklin (James Whitmore), who once led a massacre of the Comanche. Macklin, who is paranoid and insecure, has a grudge against Chief Iron Bull, whom he is convinced is out to get him. The Colonel's racist taunting and the killing of a Native American boy set the stage for a showdown that can only be prevented if trail boss Gil Favor (Eric Fleming) turns Macklin over to the Comanche.
