Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 8 ratings.
In 1959, there were almost THIRTY westerns on the TV networks, and to get on the air, you had to come up with something a bit different. Noticing the sucess of the wise-cracking, sexy "swinging detective" of the time ("Peter Gunn" and "77 Sunset Strip" come to mind), the creators of "Shotgun Slade" simply put the "swinging detective" out west, even to the point of having a hip jazz music background. Shotgun Slade was a detective who rode horseback and carried a two in one shotgun.
The guest stars in this collection include George ("Airport") Kennedy and King ("Invasion of the Body Snatchers") Donovan. And there are some hot babes to admire including Ruta ("Sergeants 3") Lee, the luscious Kathie Browne (Deena, from the orginal Star Trek's "Wink of an Eye" episode) and none other than super smoking Connie Hines, Mrs Wilbur Post from TV's "Mr Ed". Easy going, with likable scripts, these are fun shows to watch.
