This was a 30-minute television western that ran for two seasons, ending in 1961. Scott Brady played the title role. There were a couple of interesting features of the show. Slade's nickname stemmed from the fact that he did not normally carry a six-shooter, favoring a shotgun/rifle combination. Also, he was a private detective, hiring out his services like any modern-day shamus would. Lastly, Brady had a pair of the longest arms I ever saw on an actor.
