Storyline

A long-lost gold treasure, believed buried in the sand dunes of the fabulous Walking Hills, attracts adventurers Jim Carey (Randolph Scott), a rancher; Shep (William Bishop), rodeo rider wanted for murder; Old Will (Edgar Buchanan); Chalk (Arthur Kennedy); Frazee (John Ireland), a detective hunting Shep; Johnny (Jerome Courtland), a cowboy and Josh (Josh White), an entertainer. Uninvited, Chris Jackson (Ella Raines, loved by both Jim and Shep, joins the treasure-hunters. Hard work, suspicion, danger and intrigues and hatreds culminate in a grim fight with shovels, and a raging desert sand-storm leads to the conclusion.

These hills have eyes.
4 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Excellent western ,where what is apparently the main subject (the search for gold) is actually of secondary importance in the end.The director is much more interested in his characters and the relationships that are formed between them.He superbly films the desert ,which has got something lunar ,disturbing ;the signals in the distance increases this feeling of mystery.Even the flashbacks are strange ,they seem completely out of place (Ella Raines could have told her story ) and they add to the threatening atmosphere.Most of the time,the viewer does not know who is searching who and almost all the action takes place in the same place (apart from the beginning) ,which is very rare in a western.Impressive sand-storm scene.
