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.

I had caught this movie on Sony's channel GetTV. I thought it was an extremely entertaining B Western. It does not have the production quality of a post WWII major western but was a lot of fun. It was quite fun to see a young John Wayne and Walter Brennan. I was not familiar with Tim McCoy, but he had a really entertaining persona along with his giant hat. I got a kick out of how the sped up the bar room fight scenes kind of an early version of FX. If you like this one you may also like Two Fisted Law. Both movies are short so great viewing for an afternoon. These are Columbia pictures movies. John Wayne has a somewhat minor role,but one sees how he did have the persona to become a star shortly.
