Ace owns just about everything around except for the Bank, which is owned by John Ware. Ace also has his eye on Judy, but Judy only has eyes for Clay. Since Ace is a crook, he holds up the stage and has his cronies swear that Clay was the bandit which gets Clay 10 years in jail. After he gets out in 5 for good behavior, Clay sets out to find who framed him and stole the stage strongbox. Since the sheriff does not like Clay, he takes his guns away as part of his probation and it makes Clay a target for the Ace gang. Written by Tony Fontana <>

Great Classic Western with Singing!
1 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another Classic Western with the Singing Cowboy, Dick Foran,(Clay Brent),"The Big Night",'60, who gets a bum rap and has to do time in jail for something he got framed for. The real bad guy is Emmett Vogan,(Ace Cain),"How To Marry A Millionaire",'53, who just can't seem to keep his eyes off the pretty bank teller, Patricia Walthall (Judy Ware)," Alcatraz Island",'37,(uncredited). Judy does everything she can to let Ace Cain know that she loves and wants to be with Clay Brent. Ace Cain makes certain that Clay is put out of circulation for a few years. Glenn Strange, (Tex Roberts),"Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein",'48 gave a good supporting role. If you like Classic Westerns and a singing Cowboy, catch this film on TV sometime!!
