Collection of six Westerns. In 'Hell Bent for Leather' (1960), after losing his horse to thieves, Clay Santell (Audie Murphy) finds himself in the town of Sutterville.

While there he is falsely identified by the locals as wanted murderer Travers (Jan Merlin) and, despite knowing the truth, US Marshal Harry Deckett (Stephen McNally) decides to punish Clay for Travers' crimes in order to advance his career.

Clay is forced to go on the run, taking with him a hostage, Janet Gifford (Felicia Farr), who ends up helping him in his attempt to clear his name.

In 'Evil Roy Slade' (1972), having been abandoned as a young child, Evil Roy Slade (John Astin) grows up to become the most notorious villain in the Wild West.

However, he finds he has a softer side when he falls in love with schoolteacher Betsy Potter (Pamela Austin).

Meanwhile, railway mogul Nelson L. Stool (Mickey Rooney), with the help of his nephew Clifford (Henry Gibson) and Marshal Bing Bell (Dick Shawn) tries to bring Slade down.

In 'Gun for a Coward' (1957) widowed mother of three Hannah (Josephine Hutchinson) wishes she could find a way to protect her sons from the brutal world of the West.

Eldest Will (Fred MacMurray) has already taken the place of his father as head of the ranch and is quite happy working the land; the two younger sons, Bless and Hade (Jeffrey Hunter and Dean Stockwell) are still making up their minds what to do with their lives.

When Hannah decides she wants to move to the city of St.

Louis to escape the troubles of the West, she asks Bless to go with her.

Bless, always wanting to prove himself as a cowboy, refuses and vows to overcome his cowardice once and for all.

In 'Whispering Smith' (1948) detective Luke 'Whispering' Smith (Alan Ladd) investigates when the Barton brothers (Murvyn Vye, Ward Wood and Robert Kortman) hold up a train, leaving a guard dead.

As Smith sets about bringing the criminals to justice he also becomes close to Sinclair's wife Marian (Brenda Marshall)...

In 'The Cimarron Kid' (1952), after being accused of a crime he didn't commit, Bill Doolin aka The Cimarron Kid (Murphy) becomes a fugitive and joins a gang of outlaws, helping them to pull off a number of robberies.
