The friendship of three Texas Ranchers. Later their ranch was destroyed by Cotrell, of the Union army,and his band of outlaw raiders. The original title was "Distant Drums", this was a description of Civil War army deserters.
Routine Warner Bros. gangster melodrama with good cast...
ZACHARY SCOTT is a nightclub owner, using his club as a front for a gambling joint. He has a singer girlfriend (JANIS PAIGE) who doesn't seem to care how involved he is with gangsters, no matter how selfish his motives are. As his loyal girlfriend, Janis Paige gives a completely lackluster and low-key performance, instead of the usual vivacious one she was capable of.
When the police raid his gambling joint, he accidentally shoots his sister (FAYE EMERSON) during the raid while taking a shot at her husband (GEORGE TOBIAS) who was trying to be a peacemaker. Scott has to go into hiding once he escapes the clutches of the police and even then his girlfriend stands by her man. In true form, he gets his comeuppance before the final shootout. DANE CLARK is a reporter with an ambiguous friendship with the heel.
Typical Warner Bros. melodrama lacks the punch it needs to make it more than average as entertainment.
Never rises above its routine script despite some terse dialog amid dangerous situations.
