Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the tenth episode of Walt Disney's 17-part miniseries Tales of Texas John Slaughter, John (Tom Tryon) has settled into his new cattle ranch in Tombstone with the Howell family -- father David (Regis Toomey), mother Rachel (Nora Marlowe), and high-spirited daughter Viola (Betty Lynn) -- as his friends and neighbors. Receiving word that his children Willie (Brian Corcoran) and Addy (Patricia Gorman) will soon be joining him, John is delighted. But delight turns to disappointement when the kids, who haven't seen John in years, regard him as a stranger and their new home as hostile territory. Making matters worse, outlaw Loco Crispin (Gene Evans) is cutting a swath of terror throughout Arizona. "Desperado From Tombstone" originally aired as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology.
