Entertaining stage-line saga ............
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tall, dark Rod Cameron stars in this taut western from the mid 1940's. On his way to the site of some stage-line construction, he is ambushed and presumed dead. He survives the attack and follows up (incognito) to get to the bottom of the scalawag's shenanigans .....

Cameron has an opportunity here to play what amounts to a dual role, with good results. In his long career, he became typecast as many other western stars did. This film shows that his range as an actor was actually fairly broad. The supporting cast was fine and the film was paced fairly well.

While this is a routine shoot-em-up, fans of Cameron will find this one entertaining and fun. Not bad at all .........
