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.

In the opening credits, character actor Erville Alderson, who had a memorable part in "Sergeant York" as a cantankerous skinflint, is listed as Erville Anderson. See more »
Colonel Tim McCoy starred in many great western films in a career that lasted from the silent era through the 1960's. His on screen persona was matched by his heroic off-screen exploits. This film is a well written saga of a stolen inheritance and McCoy's attempts to regain what is rightfully his.
This film has a good mix of action, humor and suspense. Tim McCoy excelled in this genre and was aided here by a good supporting cast.The story is compelling and a notch above most films of the era. No needless singing cowboys or clown-like sidekicks are to be found here ......
Despite its age, this film holds up well and is worth watching again & again !
