Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Johnny Mack Brown was nearing the end of his starring career when he appeared in the Monogram oater Dead Man's Trail. Brown and his youthful sidekick Jimmy Ellison come to the aid of imperiled Barbara Allen. At this point, Johnny was too long in tooth and thick around the middle to qualify as a romantic lead, hence the presence of Ellison. But when it came to fast action, Brown always delivered the goods. Featured among the second villains in Dead Man's Trail is stuntman supreme Dale Van Sickel (he's the fellow who drove the truck in Steven Spielberg's TV-movie classic Duel).
