Storyline

The people around the town of Sloan Junction think that George Parradine is just a harmless book salesman, but he heads a gang of crooks planning to rob and pillage on a large scale. Their base of operations is the Reynolds ranch acquired by Parradine's front man, Leo Straykin, after killing the former owner. Needing money to finance their plan, they have rigged a scheme to cheat easterner Josh Taylor out of the $125,000 he is carrying to invest in the Reynolds ranch for a large group of people who want to settle there. To help check the titles and boundaries, Taylor has brought along a lawyer, Kenneth Jordan, and a surveyor, Johnny Bennett, who is really Jack Reynolds, the son of the former owner who is trying to find out who murdered his father. Circumstances permit undercover Marshal Rocky Lane to join the outlaw gang as a gunman, and with him is his sidekick, Nugget Clark, an itinerant patient medicine peddler. Rocky is working to uncover the identity of the head man, and his ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Rocky Joins the Outlaws
2 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Marshall Rocky Lane is mistaken for his deceased prisoner Clune, who was killed by the same gang he has now joined. The gang, headed by an unknown leader and taking orders from Straykin, killed a deputy marshall who was a good friend of Lane's. The next move for this gang is to rob Taylor, an easterner, of $125,000 which he plans to use to purchase a ranch, which rightfully belongs to Reynolds, who is using an alias in order to get close to Straykin's gang, who also killed Reynolds' father, in order to get the ranch. Its up to Lane, his friend Nugget Clark, to round up the outlaws before they make off with the money. As usual, a good entry in the Rocky Lane series. The movie starts off a bit slow, but builds energy as it goes along, with a nice climax at the end. The "unknown leader" gimmick is wasted here since it's pretty easy to figure out who it is, even before he's revealed halfway into the film. One of Brannon's better directorial efforts. Rating, based on B-westerns, 7.
