Synopsis by Hal Erickson
John Ericson essays the title character in Return of Jack Slade. Actually, Ericson plays Jack Slade Jr., determined to make amends for the wrongs perpetrated by his outlaw dad. Hired as a Pinkerton agent, the younger Slade goes undercover, joining a criminal gang in Wyoming. He falls in love with gang moll Texas Rose (Mari Blanchard), who like Slade isn't as bad as she seems. The villain of the piece is Harry Sutton, played with the fury of a mad dog by Neville Brand. One of the more exploitable aspects of Return of Jack Slade was the inclusion of the ballad "The Yellow Rose of Texas" then enjoying a resurgence of popularity on the top-10 record charts.
