Here is a western that has it it all . There is plenty of action , an excellent story with some excellent dialog not to mention a great cast . This is a 'A' western with a 'B ' western flavor . "B' western good guys and bad guys abound in a ' Pop ' Sherman production .
This is mounted very similar to a Hopalong Cassidy western that Sherman was adept at producing . You get the feel of a " Hoppy " film . Many of the actors seemed to be favorites of Sherman ala John Ford and appeared in Hoppys and and other productions of Shermans
The story revolves around a feud between the Morrell ( Dix and Tyler ) and the Barrett families in Texas . The leader of the Morrell clan ( Dix ) and the Barrett clan ( Jory ) signed a peace pact after a Morrell brother was killed by the youngest Barrett ( Douglas Fowley ). The Barretts move to the Cherokee Strip to continue their nefarious ways rustling , robbing stages , robbing banks and other dastardly deeds .
Dix goes to their home base of Goliath, OK. as a U.S. Marshal so he can get the 'goods ' on them for continuing to rustlers .
The 'cat and mouse ' game between Dix and Jory is excellent with Dix one step ahead of Jory . The stagecoach with both of them is excellent starting at the relay station . For the real 'B' western aficionado , that is Bill Cody handing Jory the satchel .
This is worth the watch and you will be entertained .
