You all know what we're here for. I had you men picked because I think you all feel the way I do. We didn't come out here for the good of the glorious West... but for our own good. And that being so, we're moving on Comanche territory tonight.

Jim Bowie (MacDonald Carey) and government representative Will Geer try to retrieve a stolen Comanche land treaty, which may have been stolen from Geer by lady-boss Maureen O'Hara as a means of taking the Indian's land and it's precious silver deposits.
Like all of Universal International's Technicolor B-westerns, this looks excellent, with nice use of color and picturesque locations. However, it's kind of bland, with action and suspense unimaginatively handled, though a compact running time helps keep it watchable.
The best thing about it is the witty banter between Carey and Geer, who steals every scene he's in.
