One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

This decent but unremarkable Columbia B Western stars Bill Elliott in his Wild Bill Hickock persona. Bill spends his time trying to convince a town that a couple of well-respected citizens are actually swindlers. Evelyn Keyes is the pretty love interest and Dub Taylor tries to offer a smattering of comic relief with a squeeze box, some bad singing and an itchy vest.
The direction is by Lambert Hillyer, who had been a key director for William S. Hart in the 1910s. Since the sound revolution, he had been keeping his head down in the B movies, where he could get steady work. The cast is eked out with the usual B western cast. See if you can spot a relatively young Ned Glass as a bank teller.
