The first 12 minutes is season 2 episode 1 of The Virginian 'Ride a Dark Trail'.From the scene where Trampas, Belden and Randy ride into Shiloh ranch it is season 3 episode 30 'We've Lost a Train'See more »
Errors in geography: When Trampas and the three Texas Rangers left Laredo to look for the missing train, the scenery shown was Joshua plants, native to the Mohave Desert regions of Calif, Arizona and Nevada only, none in Texas. Also the scenery shows saguaro cactus, native to the Western portions of the Arizona desert regions only, again, not found in Texas.See more »

delightful combination of "Laredo" and "The Virginian", 14 March 2000
Author: yortsnave from Columbus, OH USA

This movie combines the characters from my favorite TV Western series, "Laredo", with the characters from another excellent 1960s TV Western series, "The Virginian". If you are a fan of either, but especially of "Laredo", check this movie out. In my opinion, the best part of the movie is the relationship between the three Texas Rangers, who are fast friends but also give each other a good deal of grief.
