Tim & Chito at their very best !
21 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best B-westerns of the Post-WWII era oater featured Tim Holt and Richard"Chito" Martin. This 1949 shows the talented pair at their very best.In this exciting film, a cache of Gatling guns are stolen, with the help of an outlaw's little brother. Holt & Chito befriend the boy, hoping to reform him & find the missing firearms.

Tim Holt was easily the best actor in B-westerns. Chito could handle action, comedy and romance equally well. The script here was first-rate and action-packed. Don Haggerty was very good as the Sheriff in a well-written role.

This film was top-notch in all respects. One of the best of the Holt series.
