At the end of the Civil War, Sam White returns home to his ranch in the Texas ranch -The Panhandle - to find it in the hands of a gang of outlaws. The gang is led by Sam's foreman, Jim Tulane, who because of unsettled conditions throughout the state, has been able to use the ranch as a base for his outlaw empire. The ranch comprises an entire county and Sam had given Tuland power-of-attorney to divide it up among the people who had come to settle there. Since the efforts of Sam's father, Sheriff Tom White, to maintain law-and-order have been unsuccessful, Sam orders a wagon-trail load of guns and ammunition to be delivered to the ranch with the intentions of arming the settlers and defeating Tuland. Before the war, Sam had also discovered on the ranch rich deposits of valuable bauxite.Tulanes knows nothing of the existence of the ore but he becomes suspicious and takes Sam prisoner in an attempt to make him talk.

Low Budget Moppet Western
2 April 2003 | by (Rochester, NY) – See all my reviews

OK, so there's nothing objectively good to say about this basement budget kiddie oater from Republic, the first in a series of four featuring young'ins as the titular heroes. But when I was a city kid in the 50s, this was the sort of thing I'd eagerly plunk down my ten cents to see on Saturday afternoon. It had a boy my age who roped, rode, and packed a six-shooter (not that he ever shot anything with it). The story features your standard land-grabbing evil doer riding roughshod over a community, most of whose men are off fighting the Civil War. Featuring early roles by Hugh O'Brien (good guy)and Tristram Coffin (bad guy). Minimal production values and a scant sixty minutes run time, but, hey, we didn't notice. All that's missing are the ten color cartoons and a serial chapter for nostalgia's sake.
