While doing a good deed, the title hero has to shoot a man in self defense, and go into hiding. His peace is interrupted when a cattle baron rides into his territory, and decides to settle there. When no locals want to sell, Jared Tetlow turns to murdering the locals with his hired gun Dee Havalik, and starting a range war. Blackjack finds he has to kill the Tetlow gang off one by one, to restore peace in this movie sharing nothing in common with its real-name historical outlaw.

Did You Know?
Thomas Edward "Blackjack" Ketchum was executed in Clayton, NM, on April 26, 1901. Officials there were inexperienced with the practice of hanging criminals because there, Ketchum was the first one to be sentenced to death by hanging. The night before the hanging was scheduled, an official tested the rope with a 200-pound sandbag, but he forgot to remove it and its weight made the rope as rigid as wire. This caused an immediate decapitation, with Black Jack's headless body landing on its feet, remaining upright for some time. Prior to burial, his head was sutured back onto his body and he was buried at Clayton's Boot Hill. See more
