Blazing Six Shooters is a by-the-numbers Charles Starrett western, with the same sets, supporting actors and plot devices already seen in so many earlier Starretts. The story revolves around a valuable silver deposit, located between two ranches. Villain Lash Bender (Dick Curtis) cooks up a scheme to gain control of both ranches so that he may have a clear field to the silver lode. He is foiled by hero Jeff Douglas (Starrett), who settles Bender's hash in a climactic fist-fight (one of dozens performed by Charles Starrett and Dick Curtis over a twelve-year period). Lifting Blazing Six Shooters out of the ordinary is the inventive direction of Joseph H. Lewis, of Gun Crazy and Terror in a Texas Town fame.
