Charlie’s Angels: Angels on Horseback

A phony land deal goes sour, the con man flees with his PR girl, kills an innocent bystander as himself. The angels are called in to investigate this murder at a dude ranch north of Baja.

The manager is a blackmailing former partner, also dispatched and with a suicide note as the killer. The syndicate hires a private detective to trace the con man lest he spill, two hoods arrive to silence him, interrupting a flight to Mexico.

A chase on horseback ends it all. Bosley rides the unrideable “Old Sawtooth” and has to be Rolfed.

Woodrow Parfrey’s opening turn as the welcoming sheriff, squinting into the sun with a wide drawl, sets the scene.
