Though not as good as his later Republic entries,this is a serviceable western from Columbia for Bill Elliot.This entry finds Elliot portraying "Wild Bill" .On a casual trip to Kansas,Bill finds himself pitted against a greedy land baron[Kenneth Harland}.The idea is to start a war between the Indians and the homesteaders and Harlan getting all the land after each side looses. Elliot convinces the homesteaders to move to more fertile land,and then the trouble starts.Elliot handles his role well,as does Dub Taylor in comic relief.Harlan and Ray Teal as the bad guys,are fine.Jim Thorpe plays an Indian chief.Direction is conventional.Same for the music score.No surprises here with the usual clichés.Good outdoor photography,with a lot of stock footage.
