Storyline

On his way to help his ex-partner, miner Sam Trotter, Brit Marshall is tricked into helping Trotter's murderers get away with Trotter's gold bullion. Arrested for Trotter's murder, Brit and his comical sidekick Ike escape and begin to track down the killers to clear themselves. Clues as to the whereabouts of the bullion appear when torn corners of a playing card are found on each killer's person, leading to the identity of the gang's silent partner, one of the town's leading citizens.

Tim Holt rides the vengeance trail ..........
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This cowboy film features the great Tim Holt in a fast-paced tale of murder, gold theft and frame-up. Holt, along with his pal Ukelele Ike works to clear his name and catch his ex-partners killer ..... and exact some frontier justice !

Tim Holt was a real life WWII hero, whose career was interrupted for a few years. I have always preferred his post-war work, but this film is very good. Holt could act, and was always on top of his game in these westerns.

In many ways, this film will appeal to fans of classic shoot-em-ups..... with action, humor and actors who can actually act ! Enjoy!
