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>

Surprisingly enjoyable!

For a low budget Allied Artists oater this one is quite remarkable. The story of the son of Jack Slade infiltrating an outlaw gang really held my interest, and I am not generally a fan of westerns. John Ericson was probably too good looking for his own good, but he did still manage to find interesting and challenging character roles in a variety of small budget action films in the 50s while others like him were stuck in the rut of playing the handsome hero. He does a great job in THE RETURN OF JACK SLADE, probably better then the average 50s B-actor would have done. Mari Blanchard is also impressive as Texas Rose, the somewhat good girl mixed up with some bad boys, and the romantic chemistry between the two is quite believable and touching. If you come across this one late at night, stick around, I think you will enjoy it.
