Storyline

Domino returns from the Civil War to find his ranch in ruins and his father murdered. Five men were responsible and four were identified. One by one Domino outdraws the four that were known, all being outlaws. There is only one left now. Domino does not know his identity but that man probably knows of Domino and his mission.

Did You Know?

Goofs

Wade Harrington claimed that part of Domino's ranch is public land so that Domino had no claim to it and couldn't use it, yet Wade built a dam on it. He was saying Domino can't use it because it's public land, but then he used it. Makes absolutely no sense. See more »

The Unknown Fifth Man
19 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Rory Calhoun stars in the title role as the Domino Kid who came back from the Civil War to find his father killed. Calhoun's a pretty fast gun so after he's identified four of the five perpetrators and successfully killed them all, he's headed home to try and reclaim his ranch. Both his ranch and his woman Kristine Miller are coveted by entrepreneur Andrew Duggan. Always Calhoun has on his mind the unknown fifth man who is more than likely hunting him.

Domino Kid combines a lot of good action and for the short running time of 74 minutes gets a lot of plot involved as well. Calhoun's a man who'd like to change for the better, but knows full well if he gets a line on the fifth man he's off to the hunt.

As for the fifth man with such veterans of screen villainy like James Griffith, Roy Barcroft, Peter Whitney and even Duggan who knows who this fifth man is. In fact we don't find out until the film is almost over.

Western fans all over will love the Domino Kid. The film hasn't aged a bit since 1957.
