Storyline

Our heroes, Texas Rangers based in Laredo, are joined by a pompous and persnickity constable who plans to civilize and modernize law enforcement in Texas according to methods he's developed in nine years of law enforcement in New Hampshire. He accompanies them on an adventure in which they encounter the wily outlaw, Linda Littletrees. They lose Linda, but they do get rid of the constable only to be joined by an old friend of Reese's, a man who believes himself to be a jinx--with some reason. They set out again to capture Linda, but Linda gets a look at Joe with his shirt off and falls in love. She has him captured and tied up so she can marry him, and the other Rangers must rescue him. Joe escapes unscathed and Cletus breaks his jinx, but Linda eludes capture once more. Written by Kat Parsons <fke2d@Virginia.EDU>

Laredo: the movie!

Never passing up an opportunity to squeeze every last dollar out of a property, Universal reacted to NBC's cancellation of the "Laredo" TV series by awkwardly splicing together three episodes from the show's first season and dumping it into theaters on a double bill with "The Counterfeit Traitor," a segment of NBC's Bob Hope's Chrysler Theater starring Jack Lord and Shirley Knight. What else would you expect from a studio that also capitalized on Charles Bronson's post spaghetti western stardom by releasing old TV episodes of "The Virginian" in which he had guest-starred and releasing them theatrically in Europe, promoting them as new Bronson action pics? "Laredo" was a good show, fun and exciting, but you wouldn't know it from these early episodes which are just a tad on the dull side. But since this is a "movie" and therefore packaged with other movies when sold to television, it gives the show's small group of fans an opportunity to see Neville Brand, Peter Brown, and William Smith in their Texas Ranger roles once again, something that isn't possible as long as the series itself remains an unattractive buy in syndication due to its having had a mere two-season run, and a low rated one at that.
