Union officer Kerry Bradford escapes from Confederate Prison and is set to Virginia City in Nevada. Once there he finds that the former commander of his prison Vance Irby is planning to send $5 million in gold to save the Confederacy.
Clay Hardin is a San Antonio rancher who has been run off his land by cattle rustlers. There's a range war going on and Hardin is determined to get the man behind it all, Roy Stuart. Hardin has been hiding out in Mexico, biding his time and decides the time has come for him to return. He's managed to get hold of one of Stuart's tally books that clearly shows he was selling cattle that didn't belong to him. Stuart and his partner Legare will go to any lengths to stop Hardin before he can put the evidence before a court. Beautiful dance hall performer Jeanne Starr arrives in San Antonio under contract to Stuart and Legare but she is clearly smitten with the handsome Hardin. When the army is called away, Hardin and his supporters are left on their own to defend themselves. Written by
Clay Hardin catches the stage riding his running horse. It's never explained how he was able to jump to stage and then lift his saddle off the horse. He wouldn't have been able to run his horse as he did in the clip (over a great distance) with an uncinched saddle. See more »
The regular stagecoach stops here overnight. They don't have to sit up all night, bouncing their brains out!
It is not my brains is tired!
Well *use* them then, and get us on the regular stagecoach!
Look, Tuesday it is last night we played already... so we got to be there, yesterday yet. Because the day before, we ain't *no* place, you know?
Sheesh'a! Look... next day it is last night we don't start. And Tuesday evening is the morning we ain't coming. Now you understand?
Of course not!

"San Antonio", directed by David Butler must have been a vehicle for the handsome, and debonair Errol Flynn, who could do nothing wrong during that period of his career. Warner Bros. went all out to make this film that has a little bit of everything to please the fans of the Western genre.
The surprise of the film was Alexis Smith, who was at the height of her beauty at the time. She makes a wonderful Jeanne Starr, an entertainer, who is the center of attraction among the men one sees in the film. Not only was she a gorgeous woman who blended well with her screen partners, in this case with Mr. Flynn.
The supporting cast does good work under Mr. Butler's direction. The adorable S. Z. Sakall is wonderful as the conductor of the orchestra in the saloon where Jeanne plays. Also, Glorence Bates, an accomplished character actress appears as Jeanne's maid, Henrietta. Also in heavier roles Victor Francen and Paul Kelly do wonders with their evil roles.
"San Antonio" has kept its wonderful colors. Max Steiner's musical score also helps the action.
