In the early 1860s, Amos Norton, an unscrupulous financier, is trying to control all of the transportation modes in California. There are two established companies, the Morrison & Lidell Stagecoach Company, operated by Hank Lidell; and the new California Central Railroad, being pushed to completion by its president, Mark Benton. To bankrupt these two companies, Norton hires a notorious outlaw, Black Bart, to raid both outfits, making it look like each company was responsible for raids on the other. Lidell is convinced that Benton is trying to ruin him and declares open war. To stir the agitation more, Black Bart, posing as Jim Trevor, a rancher, joins the Morrison & Lidell forces. Jeff Connor, a stagecoach driver for Lidell, meets Benton and is convinced he is a square-shooter. When he openly says so, Lidell fires him and his pal, "Gabby" Chapman. Jo Morrison is in love with Jeff and her kid-brother, Chick, regards him as a hero. But when Jeff and Gabby go to work for Benton, they ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Plenty of Action
1 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

There is plenty of action in this Roy Rogers feature, and while "Nevada City" is probably a cut below his best features, it still works fine as light entertainment. Rogers and Gabby Hayes play basically their standard characters, and as usual they work pretty well together. The story is fairly involved, with Roy playing a stagecoach driver who gets caught in the middle of a dispute between the stage line and a railroad, with a mysterious bandit also included. The plot this time is rather full of holes, but it does set up plenty of chases and other action scenes, and there is always plenty going on to hold your attention.
