Storyline

With the stage being held up regularly, the Mesquiteers decide an airplane would be better so they get the ranchers to sell their cattle and invest in the new airline. But when a gold shipment goes out, the stage line owner has his men hijack the plane. The pilot discharges the gas causing a forced landing and the Mesquiteers must now find the missing plane and recover the gold. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Trivia

This was 'Louise Brooks'' final film. Contrary to popular rumor, this was not intended to be her "comeback" to Hollywood; she made it because she needed the money. She was paid $300 for the film. Not long after it was released, she was found working as a salesgirl at Saks Fifth Avenue at a salary of $40 a week. Brooks later referred to Wayne as "a purely beautiful being." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[reading a reward poster]
First Bandit: One thousand dollars. I guess we ain't worth much to the Oro Grande Company.
Second Bandit: That ain't no decent reward for a self-respecting bandit. What do you say we send Harmon a donation to boost the ante?
First Bandit: Maybe I will - after we polish off the three o'clock stage!

One of the worst movies I've seen
13 May 1999 | by (Texas, Dallas) – See all my reviews

A slow moving film with a VERY predictable plot. Not a worthy role for John Wayne OR Louise Brooks. A disappointment in every way. Only a western/ John Wayne/Louise Brooks completist should own this film.
