Storyline

Brothers Mike and Tim McCall own a large ranch in Arizona, using the surrounding lands for grazing cattle. Stanley Cox and LeRoy Stanton sell this land to settlers who arrive to find it bone dry, as a dam on the McCall ranch controls the water. Among the settlers are John Dawson and his daughter Connie. The latter goes to the nearest town to take action, but Sheriff Ball tells him there is nothing he can do. Tim falls for Connie but Mike is unimpressed with her charms. While returning from a town dance, Tim discovers Stanton trying to dynamite the dam, and is killed in the ensuing gunfight. Stanton later sends his men to stampede the cattle while he and Cox blow up the dam. Despite the efforts of Mike and Sheriff Ball, the cattle are wiped out and Mike races to the dam and kills Stanton in a gunfight. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

When "Stampede" went on location in northern California, co-star Gale Storm had to bring along her three sons because her husband was away on a business trip. According to the publicity materials for this film, Allied Artists became the first studio in Hollywood to have a baby-sitter on its payroll. See more »

Big budget Allied Artists western 'spectacular' has two really interesting moments: THE ALLIED ARTISTS LOGO done in a TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX style which is a very effective copy; and the big Stampede itself where hundreds of mad cows steer their way over a cliff. Maybe AA borrowed the Lydeckers from Republic or maybe they hopped over the studio fence to help out after hours, because it is a very well created scene in miniature that is quite convincing. From memory it is in a lightning storm...not a Gale Storm but a real studio storm. Gale Storm IS in this film, fresh from the Monogram musical blockbuster SUNBONNET SUE and perhaps some campus hi-jinks with Elyse Knox in another University set swing programmer (usually with Frankie Darro and Manton Moreland)....but I digress. STAMPEDE is a romantic western drama made with an attempt to showcase ALLIED ARTISTS as an arm of MONOGRAM that delivers bigger budget pix for the new age of 'competing with television' in the USA of 1949. Written by Blake Edwards!
