Goofs

Costuming error in last John Wayne scene calling home, as he's shown wearing a badge; but it is on the wrong side of his chest, and should be over his heart on the left side, not the right side. See more »

Quotes

The Sheriff: You're a slick, cunning wolf, Zanti, but I finally got ya.
Pandro Zanti: You forgot, Señor Sheriff, wolves run in packs. And mine is not far behind.

One of Wayne's Weakest

While most of Wayne's B efforts are entertaining in a fun way, this film is so sloppily edited and written, it is a dud. The first ten minutes alone show Wayne and bandits in nighttime scenes intercut with stock footage obviously shot in the day. Dwire plays a half white, half Apache bandit with a heavy Mexican accent and he cannot seem to pull off any nationality! I give this a 3.
