Homicide for western bad guys is nothing new. But the method here was highly original. Too bad it could not have been featured in a better western.

Sunset Carson made this film in 1947 and it stayed on the shelf until 1950. Sad to say it was then inflicted on the American movie-going public with some of the most awful sound I've ever encountered.

Sunset Carson is a US Marshal here and there's a brewing range war. But the bad guys have created a fake smallpox epidemic. Then they have a fake doctor treat the people and if necessary kill them with lethal injection. Original, but hardly worthwhile.

I'd skip this one, as cheap as they come.
