Storyline

The brother of a notorious outlaw is put in a charge of a stagecoach line way station in dangerous Apache territory. A stagecoach arrives at the station with a valuable box of cargo, and the outlaw brother soon shows up, though denying that he's planning to take the cargo box. Soon, however, rampaging Apaches attack the station, and the station manager, his brother and a disparate group of passengers and employees must fight them off. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Trivia

Three cast members in studio records/casting call lists did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie. These were (with their character names): Nora Cecil (Passenger), Joseph E. Bernard (Tall Man) and Byron Foulger (Clerk). Arthur Hoyt, who is listed as Meredith, is barely seen and has no lines as a traveling companion of Sarah Edwards. Cecil probably was replaced by Edwards and Foulger by Walter Soderling. See more »

Lloyd Nolan Opposes Law, Order, and Decency With Charm
26 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lloyd Nolan, cheerful black-hearted villain, shows up at his brother's stagecoach way-station, and menaces everybody there so he can get his hands on some loot. Will the denizens of the way-station force Lloyd outside the walls of the station, when justifiably irate Apaches march down the APACHE TRAIL to demand his hide?

This is a pretty good (if somewhat set-bound) western, featuring a nice villain turn by Nolan (who really does pull off both his trademark everyman likability and hiss-able villainy) and a ridiculous hot-blooded Latina turn by Midwesterner Donna Reed. There's nothing especially different about this one -- but the careful, somewhat slow MGM pacing and the generally good level of acting keep the subplots moving along. If you like Westerns, you might miss the stunting and outdoor photography you might get in other films like this, but you'll probably like what you see.

All in all, this is not a bad way to spend an hour and a half.
