Nov. 17, 1954: "Touch Connors has been signed to play a Confederate soldier -- and he'll be mighty handsome in that uniform -- in 'Five Guns West' with John Lund and Dorothy Malone."

Eventually “Touch” Conners became known as Mike Connors, star of “Tightrope” and “Mannix.” “Five Guns West” gets 2.9 stars on imdb, slightly less than “Robot Monster” but more than “Eegah.”
