Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sudden Death is the TV title of the 55-minute western Fast on the Draw. Colorado Ranger Jimmy Ellison has a phobia about handling guns, but it's his job to keep the peace. So Ellison poses as a famous gunslinger, hoping to intimidate a crooked land baron into capitulation. There comes a time in the course of the film that the Ranger must prove that he isn't all talk. Fast on the Draw was one of six Lippert "Four Star" westerns filmed back to back in the space of one month; all six films starred Ellison, Russell Hayden, Raymond Hatton and Betty (later Julie) Adams.
