Storyline

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. Turner, looking for Slade, is shot down by Sutton, and Slade vows revenge and, with Ryan's help, sets a trap for the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A fun shoot-em-up with good kissing thrown in....
20 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie has more pluses than minuses. John Ericson is, there's no other word for it, sexy. Plus, he can really handle a gun! It's not his all time best performance (I still think that's in RHAPSODY) but it's solid.

He's a plus, and I really liked his friend in the film, Johnny, played by Jon Sheppod. I was sorry he didn't have a bigger part in the film. There are some nice love scenes between Ericson and Mari Blanchard.

I think Angie Dickinson even in a small role has more star power and beauty than Blanchard, and I would have liked to see her in Blanchard's part, chasing Ericson. But she's fun to watch anyway.

OK, you have to forgive the fact that the women are dressed in tight pants, wear ponytails and a lot of make-up--they look like women of the fifties, not the post-Civil War era.

And I was disappointed the film was not in color, especially since most of it is shot outdoors. But all in all, a good Western with scrumptious eye candy.
