Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Pretty early oater
26 December 1998 | by (Manchester,MO) – See all my reviews

I pretty much like this early western,in which the emphasis is on an innocent man's attempt at revenge,and one of the best this guy ever starred in.Unfortunately,I didn't get to see the original opening and closing for this film,but I think Columbia Pictures(the studio that made this film) has the print with the original opening and closing titles.
