Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Three Mesquiteers take on a group of frontier fascists in the zippy series entry Roarin' Lead. This being Season One of the "Mesquiteers" series, the heroic threesome is played by Ray "Crash" Corrigan (as Tucson Smith), Robert Livingston (Stony Brooke), and Max Terhune (Lullaby Joslin). Appointed trustees of an estate, the Mesquiteers are assigned to turn over part of the legacy to a trustee of an orphanage. Said trustee is a member of a cattlemen's protective association, run along the lines of a brown-shirted private army by corrupt politico Hackett (Hooper Atchley). To save the orphanage from being closed down by Hackett and his minions, the Mesquiteers ride hard, fight harder, and shoot hardest. Best moment: Upon being confronted by Hackett henchman Canary (Yakima Canutt) and a group of cowboy storm troopers, our three heroes burst out laughing.
