In the third episode of Walt Disney's 17-part miniseries Tales of Texas John Slaughter, Slaughter (Tom Tryon) and another Texas ranger are sent to a bank to pick up the ranger's payroll. Unfortunately, the bank is held up by the vicious Barko gang, who kill Slaughter's comrade and leave him beaten and unconscious. Upon recovering, Slaughter takes it upon himself to bring in the leader of the gang -- Mrs. Barko (Beverly Garland), a sadistic murderer who holds her husband and his henchmen in thrall. Originally telecast as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology, "Killers From Kansas" and the subsequent episode "Showdown at Sandoval" were edited together in 1961 and released overseas as the "feature film" Gunfight at Sandoval.
