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.

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.
