1.01 [--] Shotgun Slade: THE SALTED MINE  (pilot - see above)
(broadcast title & copyright title)
prod no.13401
26Oct59 copyright date
24Nov59 syndicated airdate
Guest Cast:
Ernie Kovacs .................. Hack
Marie Windsor ................. A. S. Batson
Frank Ferguson ................ Mike Colier
Slade is hired by A.S. Batson (Marie Windsor) to prove that the
Missouri Mine that she bought from Mike Collier (Frank Ferguson)
was salted. He is ambushed and his horse killed before he even
gets to town, and then a crazy old prospector named Hack (Ernie Kovacs)
tries to keep him away from town. When Collier turns up dead, hanged
inside his own mine, anybody might have done it--and when he finds out
how the mine was salted, who did it, and why, Slade suddenly finds himself
fighting for his life in a cave-in. One of the best things about this
show is the dialogue, which is incredibly suggestive for its era--
when Slade, angry over the ambush, knocks on the door of A.S. Batson's
home and discovers that Batson is a beautiful woman, she asks, "Why didn't
you use a battering ram." He answers, "If I'd known you were on the other
side I might've." No surprise that the show is good, tough, and violent,
as it was produced and written by legendary western/thriller writer Frank Gruber.
