Storyline

About to marry Jim Plummer, Kate Foley runs off to Nevada when Ed Bagley convinces her a quick fortune can be made robbing gold shipments that are being transported by the railroad. In Bannock City she meets reformed-bandit Frank Plummer, posing as Frank Norris, brother of Jim Plummer, who has being going straight and working as an express shipment guard. Jim also shows up and plans a robbery by stealing a train and hiding it in an abandoned tunnel. The two brothers are on opposite sides of the law with the now-reformed Kate caught in the middle.

Above average Western, plenty of action.

Another fine outing from Republic and Bill Elliott. Tucker is the crooked brother that tries to lure Elliott back into a life of crime by robbing a train full of gold. The TRUCOLOR is great and so is the supporting cast featuring Andy Divine. Plenty of action, this one moves along swiftly.
