Storyline

During the gold-rush days, Tom Horn is jailed for an assay office holdup at Gold City, after he loses his money and horse to cardsharp Blackie. Tom escapes with cell-mate Morgan, when the latter's men, Mingo, Red and Curly, rescue him from the jail. Mingo, and most of the gang, dislike Tom and they have lean times until Tom, using Morgan's gun, robs the Blue Goose Mining Company, where Julie works. The gang hides out in a ghost town from where they rob a train, and Tom saves Morgan's life. Tom and Julie become sweethearts, and he promises her wealth and a trip to San Francisco. But the gang begins to unravel. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The best performance of Barry Sullivan
19 January 2013 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

I think one of the best performances of Barry Sullivan, perhaps the best. A nostalgic film, considered a western B, but with a high level of photography, an intelligent script and excellent performances by Sullivan and Broderick Crawnford. An old and unpretentious western that deserves to be revised when. When I saw Bad Men of Tombstone for the first time I was only 10 years old and after that I have reviewed several times whenever possible. For a long time I looked for a copy on VHS and then DVD, but could not. Finally got a DVD and then I could better analyze the film Kurt Newmann, whose script, I realized later is the competent Philip Yordan. The western highlights the harsh frontier life where it was not possible to trust people and stealing was an activity considered almost normal. Keep me a copy of this valuable western made ​​in a distant era - 1949 - so 63 years ago. A worthy representative of the western filmography
