After a prologue that takes place immediately after the end of the Civil War, the body of the film takes place fifty years later, which would make it about 1914. At this time the Three Mesquiteers are supposed to be Pony Express riders; however, Pony Express only ran from 1860 to 1861, having been abandoned at the start of telegraph service. See more »
The final Three Mesquiteer film for John Wayne has the boys trying to help some settlers who are about to lose their land to some bad men. At the moment I can't recall how many of the Wayne films I've seen from this series but this is just like most of them. The film contains some pretty good action scenes and Wayne is good as usual but the stories aren't really that strong. Jennifer Jones has a small supporting role and does a pretty nice job.
As of now the only way to view these films is by AMC, which also includes commercials.
