I saw this movie back in the 60`s before this movie went into the vaults not to be seen again.Everything in this movie looked real especially the runaway stage coach full of supplies as I remember.Also, the suffering in the desert by all the main characters including the girl without water looked real.As the movie went on I thought they would all die.Of all the westerns and the serials I have seen-this movie probably had the most suffering.Like the serials especially of the 1930`s,this movie had an unusual texture that you won`t forget.
