JOHNNY RINGO "Lobo Lawman" 1960

JOHNNY RINGO was a western series that ran for 38 episodes during 1959-60. The series starred Don Durant as the title character with Karen Sharpe, Mark Goddard and Terence De Marney as series regulars. The series follows Durant, (Ringo) a former gunfighter who decides to go straight. He becomes the Sheriff in the small town of Velardi in the Arizona Territory. The series was one of several (Rifleman, Wanted Dead or Alive, Shotgun Slade etc) with a "gimmick gun". Durant carries a special LeMat revolver equipped with a shotgun barrel under the six gun barrel.

This episode is the 37th episode of the series.

In this episode, a Federal Marshal hits town with a notorious Mexican bandit in tow. The lawman, Karl Swenson, is attempting to reach Yuma Prison with his prisoner. There are several problems with this idea. First is the fact that the outlaw, Rodolfo Hoyos Jr has his gang close behind. They of course want to free their leader from Swenson. The second problem is that Sheriff Durant hates Swenson, and blames him for killing a friend of his years before.

Swenson wants to hole up in the jailhouse and fight it out with the pursuing bandits. Durant figures they should hit the road and save the town from becoming a battleground. He offers to help take Hoyos to Yuma. Then he and Swenson can settle their beef.

Needless to say this idea likewise becomes unravelled as Swenson gets cut up badly by Hoyos during an escape try. They hole up in some rocks and wait for the trailing bandits to arrive. Maybe they can ambush them and even out the odds. This plan does not work either and a raging gun-battle ensues. Durant manages to flank the bandits and scare off their horses. Durant, Swenson and prisoner now ride off for Yuma.

Durant now decides that he has lost any desire for revenge against Swenson.

By no means is this one a barn-burner, but it passes the time well enough.
