Storyline

After some gun play with a posse, the James Gang head for Quinto in a section of land which is not a part of America. Anyone there is beyond the law so the town is populated with outlaws. Next to arrive is Sheriff Rowley, following his brother whom the Gang have brought in injured. Rowley has no authority and gets on well enough with the James boys but is soon involved in other local goings-on, including a move to vote for annexation with Oklahoma which would allow the law well and truly in. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

Ben Johnson appears uncredited as a member of Marshal Hampton's posse. He even has a line or two of dialogue. He and the marshal and another deputy dismount and enter a building on location. In the next shot, the studio interior, Hampton and the deputy come through the door, but not Ben, he has disappeared and is seen no more. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie when the outlaws are leaving Quinto for Texas, the newspaper lady watches them leave and then turns to write a column. The calendar on the wall shows the 1st on a Sunday and 31 days in the month. This could be March of 1891 or December of 1889; however, later in the movie the newspaper with the blank advertising block is dated September 21, 1890. So, the wall calendar in the newspaper office is incorrect (it's either the previous year - 1889- or the next year - 1891). See more »

Quotes

Henryette Alcott: I'd advise you to remove that star.
Sheriff Mark Rowley: Well, thanks, but I think I can take care of myself.
Henryette Alcott: The life expectancy of a sheriff can be very short in Quinto.

A Mediocre Mess but as Comfortable as a Campfire
27 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so Many Names of Outlaws and Such in this Murky Story of Bandits and Marshalls that in the End it is just One Big...Ho-Hum. This Western from RKO has a Good Look about it but what it's About is Anybody's Guess.

Randolph Scott is OK but is Not the Stoic, Sombre Presence that He Assumed in the Budd Boetticher Classics. Here He is just Randolph Scott, Tall and Unwavering. The Cast has some Familiar Faces and some Not So Familiar to Casual Moviegoers.

Gabby Hayes is just a Heartbeat from Irritating and is Most Effective with a Double Take Glance than with that Grovely, Grating Galoot of a Voice that is So Recognizable. He has Much to Do in this Mediocre Western and is as Good as Anybody here.

There is a Boring Horse Race Among other Boring Things in this Long Story that is Never Woven Together Adequately. Lawrence Tierney is Wasted as Jesse James as is just about Everyone Else. The Movie Needs more Edge and more Grit, because as it Stands it is a Plate Full of Campfire Comfort that Almost Works but Ultimately is Nothing More than Name Dropping.
