Low budget forgettable Western - Spoilers
29 October 2003 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Wooden acting and poor quality special effects mar this Ken Maynard Western. Miniatures of the dam bursting and resulting water rushing down on the ranch simply do not impress today. Nor does the rear projection supporting what could have been a excellent scene where the hero is saved by his horse. Good opening shots of horses falling into the river. Ward Bond plays the bad guy.
