This is a small grade film with a twist. A marshall turns on the corrupt town officials who appointed him to office. He spends the rest of the film battling both them and the usual outlaws. Richard Dix is fine in a role that is made for him. Jane Wyatt provides the love interest. Victor Jory as the suave but all too human villain is also memorable. This received an Oscar nom for Original Score - probably not deserving.
