Riding toward Santa Fe, Tom Crenshaw shoots a bushwhacker who has killed Dad Bates from ambush. Discovering a money belt on Bates, Tom carries it to town, along with a letter he finds in the pocket of the killer, which offers him the means of identifying either of the dead men. In town, Tom has a run-in with gunman One-Shot Morgan and one of Morgan's henchmen sees Tom with the money belt. Tom poses as the renegade who did the killing and is accepted by Morgan and his gang. Tom's plan is working until one of the gang who knew the killer shows up and denounces him as an impostor. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

some problems but very good
14 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with some points that the other reviewer made about this film. However, I did enjoy this one quite a bit. Despite missing frames, plot holes, and some unlikely scenarios, this is a fast paced, action packed little movie with a very likable cast. Tom Tyler makes a very fine western hero and Jeane Martel is one of the prettiest women I ever saw on film. Her eyes are intensely lovely. There are some things that don't make any sense...like why did the hero hang on to the money and hide it in the bunkhouse when he should have done the right thing and give it to the girl...after all it was her money? And, as the previous review pointed out, why did the heroine welcome the Tyler character back with open arms right after he'd been arrested for gunning down her father??? These things were shot and edited so fast that probably they didn't have time to work out the kinks in the plot. Regardless, it is a very fast moving film and I was never bored or tempted to look away. This one was much better than Lost Ranch which also features the same leads. As for the politically incorrect stuff...its a common feature of these old movies, sometimes I think people forget how old these things are. They were made in a different world and that only adds to the interest factor these old movies have to offer. WARNING no computers were used in the creation of this motion picture!!!!
