Disaster Relief
26 January 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Tim Holt western has a different background than a lot of westerns as the subject is disaster relief. Inez Cooper who is a leading citizen and a wealthy one in Mexico has pledged her jewelry collection which is considerable and she's raised a lot more for the relief of her country's citizens left destitute after an earthquake. Tim Holt and Richard Martin rescue her from a robbery attempt by John Doucette and his gang of outlaws.

But House Peters, Jr. and saloon girl Jane Nigh also are interested and Peters is a ruthless con artist. They have one uneasy alliance with Doucette. Something that Tim and Chito can exploit.

Nigh is one woman Chito can't charm and Cooper is a bit out of his league.

Enough gunplay and a fast moving story for any B western fan.
