In Tomahawk, the crooked Jackman brothers control the town, Sheriff Dunham is up for re-election, the sheep growers are banned in town and a stagecoach line undercover investigator arrives to catch the gang that regularly robs the stages.
During the 1850s, crooked lumber syndicate man Beauvais tries to take over the local mill while Sequin, the sensual owner of a gambling riverboat, tries to control the heart of Mississippi lumberjack Dan Corrigan.
In New Mexico, a Confederate veteran returns home to find his fiancée married to a Union soldier, his Yankee neighbors rallied against him and his property sold by the local banker who then hires a gunman to kill him.
The movie is a western build around breeding, catching, and also a bit stealing horses. Nothing too deep but quite entertaining.
There is some beautiful horses in the movie not to forget the wild stallion Black Velvet. And for those more interested in looking at the fair gender Ann Blythe looks great and is not just playing the usual spoiled rich mans daughter but someone that actually have useful skills with horses. The romance in the movie never takes over the movie and get too mushy but just adds a little spice.
This is not the greatest western ever made but beautiful shot and with an entertainment level I would say above average. Strange this movie is so unknown while much better than many more well known westerns. I would recommend it for pure entertainment.
