Setting lifts this film up to better than average
26 July 2010 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Tom Keene is sent to California to bring law and order just as the territory becomes a state. It seems that the Americans are running off the Mexicans from their land unjustly. Keeane ends up helping the Mexicans when their leader is killed.

Better than average western is helped a great deal by the dressing the plot is given.You may have seen it before but the window dressing is such it doesn't completely seem like it. It is also on interest because it stars Rita Hayworth in one of her first roles.

Worth a look.
