The character of Buckley is based on the 1931 murder of Adolph Ruth, whose knowledge of the Lost Dutchman came from his father through an employee of the Peralta family. He disappeared in Superstition in 1931 and his skull was found half a year later with two bullet holes in it. Also discovered was his unfired pistol and his checkbook in which he had written that he had indeed located the mine. Over the years other murders and disappearances of treasure seekers have helped to build the legend. See more »

I saw this film in first release, and still remember it well. It is a rehash of the more enjoyable legends of the Lost Dutchman's Mine in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. The casting of solid pros for all the roles probably lifts the film beyond the level of programmer. Gig Young was years away from the recognition that came with "They Shoot Horses Don't They?" and somewhat a prisoner of his classical good looks. Glenn Ford, not conventionally handsome, was a star at the time. People still search for the Lost dutchman, or "Dutchman's Lost Mine" in Arizona to this day. It would be a shame if someone found it.
