Storyline

Sergeant Carlos Olivarez of the Mexican Rurales (police) suspects a North American named Clark of complicity in a land swindle. He believes the woman Consuela to be in league with Clark, and further believes her responsible for the seduction and betrayal of Carlos's brother Juan, who commits suicide. Carlos befriends young Ramon Ruiz and his family, but discovers that Ruiz's intended bride is none other than Consuela. Carlos sets out to disrupt the duping of Ramon's family by Consuela, Clark, and their vicious henchman Pedro. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

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.

Rather complicated plot for a "near formula" western
26 October 2003 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

To be sure it's a formula western, involving the usual landgrabbing and skulduggery, but it packs a lot of complications into a mere 60 minutes. Most of this complexity comes from the machinations of slinky femme fatale Mona Maris, working for an unscrupulous oil magnate who is trying to force ranchers to sell their land to him to be used for oil development. She forces one young man to financial ruin and suicide. As it happens, he was the brother of the Rurale Sergeant who was assigned to track down the source of the "bandit" depredations on the ranchers. These bandits were, naturally, working for the oil man. She also seduces a young Rurale Corporal, protege of the Sergeant, and causes a rift between the two. It won't be a surprise to you that with Buck Jones on the job she is headed for trouble, but she spreads a lot of trouble of her own making before that happens.

Buck Jones is totally unconvincing as a Mexican, and the rest of the acting is at High School Senior Play level. Direction is pretty sloppy as well, but for all that it is a rather interesting little western. I give it a 6 out 10.
