Trivia

Warner Bros. salvaged long shots of silent Ken Maynard films and used them in this film. Thus, many of the long shots of John Wayne and Duke are actually shots of Maynard and Tarzan from earlier films. See more »

Quotes

Joe Ryan: Benedict, just why are you back in town? And what are you trying to pull, up at the Mary-Ann?
Benedict: No one's been near that worthless mine for years
Joe Ryan: I'm not so sure it's worthless. You ain't hanging on here for nothing.
Benedict: Joe Ryan, your father was a bad man in this town. What are you trying to do - live up to his record?
Joe Ryan: Listen to me you old carcass, there's plenty of gold in that mine somewhere, and half of it belongs to me. And I've got a deed right here to prove it.
Benedict: Yes, and I got a pretty good idea...

Interesting old Wayne film.
9 December 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

What parts this western from the rest of Wayne's other 'B' films is the fact that some horror elements are thrown in. The result is undeniably interesting. It wasn't often that you'd find something really different about 'B' westerns, but once in awhile, the filmmakers would have an interesting idea. This is the result of such an idea. Of course, you can really figure out what this is about from the title, but a good view anyways for differences between this and a standard western.
