"Tell Mr. Lincoln we'll keep the western gold moving"
17 August 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Western Gold is yet another of those westerns about the Civil War in the west and the struggle to get those precious metals back east to pay for said war against the Confederacy. Whether it's the Confederates or some greedy outlaws there's always somebody looking to rob the gold or the silver as the case may be.

This has even come to the attention of Abraham Lincoln and while he keeps mum about his plans to the Cabinet, Frank McGlyn who made a career of playing the Great Emancipator has an agent in mind. The son of an old friend from the Black Hawk War Smith Ballew goes on detached service in the west to put a stop to this thievery.

Ballew was a big band vocalist before turning singing cowboy. One thing about Western Gold was that it used actual music from the era instead of Hollywood western ballads with one exception. Ballew also woos and wins Heather Angel who only two years earlier was being directed by John Ford in The Informer.

Nothing terribly special in this Sol Lesser Production that was released by 20th Century Fox. put
