Texas, 1878: cheerful outlaw-buddies Jim, Lorn and Wahoo rescue spunky orphan Rannie Carter from rustling racketeers, then are forced to separate. Lorn goes on to bigger and better robberies, while Jim and Wahoo are (at first reluctantly) maneuvered into joining the Texas Rangers. For friendship's sake, the three try to keep out of direct conflict, but a showdown begins to look inevitable. And Rannie, now grown into lovely young womanhood, must choose between Lorn and Jim.

One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by MCA ever since. Its initial telecast took place Thursday 8 January 1959 in San Francisco on KPIX (Channel 5); in Philadelphia it had its television premiere Friday 6 February 1959 on WCAU (Channel 10). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so most vintage film showings were still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »

He wasn't much of a hand at nothing but a jug. But he was decent enough to me. I sure hope there's plenty of filled-up jugs wherever he's gone.

This stars MacDonald Carey and William Holden. I grew up always watching McDonald Carey as Dr. Horton on Days Of Our Lives but I had never seen what he looked like when he was so young before. He was very handsome. He played an outlaw who helped rescue the main woman in the movie when she was just a girl. Also in this movie is Alfonso Bedoya. I saw him in the very first film I saw at film class in college, The Treasure of The Sierra Madre -- also a very good Western. Anyway, what I liked about this one is how the two friends who rescued the main woman when she was a girl were enemies now on account of how McDonald Carey was now an outlaw but William Holden was now a Sheriff and William Bendix, who was very funny, played his deputy, Wahoo. So, there was lots of tension back and forth, and the ending really surprised me. I liked this Western a lot.
