Storyline

A late entry in the TV Westerns boom of the late 50s. Shotgun Slade unlike other show hero wasn't a marshal, sheriff or gunfighter for hire, but Slade was a private detective, hired to track down criminals, return stolen money, or solve mysteries surrounding the death of towns people. The show has more in common with shows like Peter Gunn and 77 Sunset Strip then Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Shotgun Slade depended on strong characters and story lines then action.

Peter Gunn meets the Old West
19 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've got 2 episodes of "Shotgun Slade" on DVD. It seems to me that Revue Studios was, indeed, trying to copy "Peter Gunn", right on down to having its blonde "Edie Hart"-type girl singer girlfriend character, played by Monica Lewis. Unlike "The Wild Wild West", which was played half-straight to be something of a "spy show in the West", "Slade" was played totally straight. The show is so bad that it's unintentionally funny. The acting and plots are hammy, phony, and unconvincing. Scott Brady was a former boxer so he knows how to throw a punch but the opening of the show gives you an idea he's not much in the acting dept. (and the rest of the show confirms it)...Its badness makes this show a real find. You'd have to look far and wide to find a tackier "Adult Western" of the time period.
