Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the second episode of Walt Disney's 17-part miniseries Tales of Texas John Slaughter, newly installed Texas ranger Slaughter (Tom Tryon) has succeeded in rounding up the last members of Frank Davis' outlaw gang. Unfortunately, Davis (Robert Middleton) has been released on bail and has fled to Laredo. Together with fellow ranger Ben Jenkins (Harry Carey Jr.), Slaughter tracks Davis down to his new hideout, where he is conferring with five other outlaw bosses in hopes of creating a vast criminal empire. Originally telecast as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology, "Ambush at Laredo" was in 1960 edited together with the previous episode "Texas John Slaughter", and released theatrically overseas as a "feature film", also titled Texas John Slaughter.
