HELLGATE - This post-Civil War yarn was adapted from the story of Dr. Mudd, the physician who attended John Wilkes Booth, assassin of President Lincoln. In 1867 Kansas, veterinarian Sterling Hayden treats an injured stranger who turns out to have been a guerrilla raider--and Hayden soon finds himself serving a term in one of the world's most terrifying prisons under sadistic commandant Ward Bond. PANHANDLE - John Sands (Rod Cameron), a reformed gunman, now a storekeeper in a Mexican border town, again straps on gun belt and six-shooters to find the killer of his brother. FANGS OF THE WILD (Follow the Hunter) - A boy who has frequently cried 'Wolf!' now cries 'Murder!'--and this time he's telling the truth. But because of his fib-filled history, when he claims to have seen hunter Charles Chaplin Jr. shoot and kill a fellow hunter, no one will believe the lad. No one, that is...except Chaplin. TRAIN TO TOMBSTONE - There are roaring wheels and roaring thrills as the Tombstone train crosses 'unfriendly Indian' territory with the usual offbeat assortment of passengers (a la Stagecoach), among them a 'law officer' (Robert Lowery) who is actually a crook with his eye on the train's government gold shipment. OPERATION HAYLIFT - The infamous 1949 real-life blizzards that threatened Nevada cattle herds are recreated in this drama with Bill Williams and Ann Rutherford as ranchers imperiled by the snows until the U.S. Air Force organizes 'Operation Haylift.' WILDFIRE (in Cinecolor) - A gang of crooks is attempting to drive out the local ranchers by rustling their horses and laying the blame on 'Wildfire', the leader of a wild horse herd.
