Storyline

Jim Redfern dreams of owning his own cattle ranch and along with his partners Mike Evans and Ling heads off on the Cariboo Trail into the interior of British Columbia. There's a gold rush on and along the way they're joined by old-timer Grizzly Winters, a prospector who hasn't had much luck of late. They soon come up against Frank Walsh whose men stampede their cattle. Evans is severely injured forcing Redfern to amputate his left arm. Evans hates him for that and will have nothing to do with him or his dream of the cattle ranch. Walsh owns the local town making it difficult for Redfern to get re-established. Things begin to go his way when he finds gold. Written by garykmcd

entertaining, colorful but not "adult" Scott western
19 July 2012 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film has many faults, and if Randolph Scott made many westerns that could be called "adult" this is certainly not one of them. You can't take it seriously but I enjoyed it. One must remember that this film was made in 1950, and color here is of great importance,considering most westerns of the forties and before were made in black and white. Randolph Scott had the ideal physique for a western hero, and his presence together with a nice scenery and a lot of action, the usual fistfight, and shootouts, cattle stampede, Indian attacks would please most of the spectators of the fifties and it sure pleases me, perhaps a nostalgic feeling. Gabby Hayes is always a welcome presence, great sidekick. Bill Williams has a good performance as Mike Evans, who loses his arm and blames it on Scott, Karen Booth as the saloon owner who falls for Scott, and a small part of a very young Dale Robertson as Will Gray. If you are a nostalgic for old westerns like me you will enjoy it.
