Better than ordinary movie, until the end!
29 April 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot going for it - Tex Ritter, his singing and his wry sense of humor; Dave O'Brien and his presence; Guy Wilkerson as comic relief and the worst telegraph operator in history; Patti McCarty as a together woman; Betty Mills as a tough frontier woman. On top of this, the story is not a warmover of other "B" movie plots. It created real tension and delivered a WWII message about despotism and freedom. All of that goes to making this movie enjoyable, but the best is still the way the gang leaders came to justice! I have never seen that in any other movie. You shouldn't miss that.
