Storyline

A gang of outlaws takes over El Dorado, a ghost town, just before gold is rediscovered there. With the boom comes easy money for Gils Brandon and his henchmen. Meanwhile, vigilantes, seeking to curb the lawlessness of the town, offers the job of Marshal to Steve Rawlins. On the day that Gil's fiancée, Ellen Randall, arrives in town, Gil is shot when he makes an attack on the new Marshal. Discovered in a dying condition by his twin brother, Buck Brandon, Gil regrets his outlaw past and asks Buck to make El Dorado a decent place. Steve learns of the relationship and enlists the aid of Buck in cleaning up the town. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Okay Mix
2 August 2017 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Okay oater-- lots of hard riding and gunplay, along with a final big brawl. But don't expect much scenery since the shoot never leaves greater LA. The plot's more complex than most, Brown getting to play two parts as identical twins. Seems good guy Brown (Buck) is helping clean up boomtown that bad guy Brown (Gils) has helped corrupt—so keep a scorecard to tell them apart. Meanwhile Ritter's ace Sheriff is brought in to help. And guess what—there's Fuzzy Knight for comic relief gargling out what may be the worst song in oater annals. Good thing Jimmy Wakely's Trio is on hand to get back my ears. No, no fan of these matinees follows them for logic. I mean catch all the shooting where no one aims and horses never go down no matter how big the fusillade. After all, we front-row kids would have stormed the screen over a dead horse. And I guess this now front-row geezer would still storm the screen, TV, that is. Anyhow, it's an okay time-passer without being anything special.
