Description by OLDIES.com:
Red River Johnny returns home to claim his family ranch and hunt down Three-Finger Jack, the man who killed his father. The Son of an outlaw who spread bloodshed and terror throughout the Southwest, Johnny is not welcomed in town by Sheriff Bat Masters. Three-Finger Jack and his gang frame Johnny for a series of hold-ups, but Johnny evades capture and rides into town with his own crew of gunmen. The streets are littered with corpses as Johnny takes back what is his.
One of the most brutal westerns ever shot, Son of the Renegade was written and produced by B-Western actor and stunt man Johnny Carpenter, who also stars. Cameraman William Thompson's work includes such Edward D. Wood classics as Glen Or Glenda (1953) and Plan 9 From Outer Space (1956).
The first of several nostalgic westerns written, produced by, and starring Johnny Carpenter (who would later be credited as John Forbes), SON OF THE RENEGADE is the story of Red River Johnny (Carpenter) and his battles with Three Fingers (Jack Ingram), a crook intent on ruining his reputation. With a team of helpers in tow, Johnny returns to the West planning to reclaim the land once stolen from his father by the town sheriff. Not only does Johnny make an enemy in the town's new sheriff (Verne Teters); he also has to prove his own innocence when Three Fingers frames him for a group of bank robberies that he did not commit.
