Coy starts a bank, while his cousin, Ned Strawn, opens a saloon. THe rest of the Barretts, headed by Hawk, establish a hideout in the Strip where they run a gambling house and conceal stolen cattle. Alf Barrett, whom Lovell believes dead, also makes his headquarters in the strip. Lovell receives an appointment as a U. S. Marshal and is assigned to Goliath. Once there, he finds the Barrett clan is operating against the law he is pledged to uphold. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A Western Feud That Covers 2 states
18 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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 .
