Storyline

A group of Arizona ranchers, trying to learn the identities of the Salt River Gang and prevent any further rustling, marks the currency that rancher Frank Abbott turns over to the gang to get his cattle back. Unfortunately drifters Dick McBride and Chito Rafferty are accused of being in the gang when they are found with the money, which they have actually won at the casino of saloon owner Brad Carew, a member of the gang. Dick and Chito break out of jail and hunt down the fleeing Carew in hopes of finding out who the true leader of the gang is. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Standard Holt western featuring a young Martha Hyer
22 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tim Holt and his trusty sidekick Chito Rafferty hit the trail once again. This time they are mistaken for cattle rustler and arrested. They promptly escape from jail and then seek out the real cattle rustlers to clear their good names. It's the usual Tim Holt western nonsense, with Holt as too good of an actor for these western programers (though he was incredibly popular and certainly made good money, so I guess I can't blame him). The only thing to set this film apart from any number of other Holt westerns is a rather kinky scene where Holt spanks a before-she-was-famous Martha Hyer.
