Jack Slade, son of the famed lawman and man-hunter, is hired by a Pinkerton detective, Joseph Ryan, to help wipe out a gang of outlaws and train robbers, Billy Wilcox, Hary Sutton and Little Blue Raven, and their women, Texas Rose, Polly Logan and Laughing Sam. Slades gets off to a slow beginning when his gun is taken away from him by Texas Rose during a train robbery. Learning from Ryan the location of the gang hideout, Slade leaves his pal Johnny Turner behind and joins the gang as a wanted outlaw.

Good flick but could have been better!
26 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like all the films staring Ericson. He has always been an under rated actor. No one would know he was born in Germany. The film is a good, not great, Western. Why it was not done in color is beyond me. I wished it would have been a bit more true historically but thats the way of the westerns of the fifties! The film does have some witty moments. Another asset is Neville Brand. He was one of the all time heavies and shows his stuff in this flick. Worth the time to watch! The outdoor scenes are also good. Was also a good start for Angie Dickinson who does not have a great part but still shines. The interaction of Slade and "Com padre" is also good but could have been longer. I also like the fact that the weapons are accurate for the period. Most flicks of this era didn't pay much attention to the details. Although an older film parental discretion should be used because of the violence.
