This made-for-TV film was the pilot for the short-lived 1970 series The Bearcats.
A Mexican bandit is about to be executed in the United States so his brother takes over a train and holds the passengers as hostages unless his brother is released. Both the Americans and Mexicans are baffled as to what to do, but one of the passengers, who wrote the letter for their captor, has a suggestion: call Hank Brackett and Johnny Reech, two mercenaries. As expected Brackett and Reach come up with a plan but the president of the railroad is not sure if it will work.
Actors: Michael Ansara, Fernando Lamas, John McIntire, Rod Taylor
