Storyline

Cowhands Ross Taylor and his pal Chito Rafferty rescue road-construction engineer Dan Madden and his wife, Mary, when Madden is delayed starting work on a road running parallel to a toll road operated by Anson Thurder and his armed henchmen. After a running gun battle, Ross and Chito get the Maddens to the construction site, aided by Jay Wingate, who is in league with Wingate but poses as an advocate of the new road. When Madden's surveying instruments are destroyed while under Wingate's protection, Ross and Chito uncover the connection between Thurber and Wingate. To get rid of Ross, Wingate insinuates that Ross and Mary are having an affair. Ross knocks him down but is arrested for assault by the sheriff, but Chito rescues him. Ross and Chito save Madden from Wingate's next scheme to get rid of him, but all three are trapped in a canyon wired with dynamite and about to be set off by Wingate's men.

Goofs

Mary Madden (Lynne Roberts) accuses someone of slipping her brother Dan a 'Mickey' but the term 'Mickey' or 'Mickey Finn' representing an incapacitating drug slipped into someone's drink didn't originate until the late 1890s, decades after the setting portrayed in this movie. See more »

One of the Good Ones
15 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I always think it ironic that some of the very best B westerns come from the period when they were finally on the way out, i.e.1950 onwards.

This is a particularly good series entry, not because it is especially different or unusual, but because all of the necessary ingredients are neatly balanced. The plot is uncomplicated but wholly adequate, the cast (including stalwarts Toomey, Dehner, Harvey, Haggerty and Pyle) is well above average, the action sequences are well handled and evenly distributed throughout the film's short (61 minutes) running length and, this being an RKO picture, everything looks just as it should be. This may have been considered a "throwaway" item in the eyes of the studio but budget and facilities were still way ahead of those of the "poverty row" outfits responsible for the production of so many B westerns throughout the years.

Tim Holt always came across in his movies as competent and likable: his performances were pleasantly understated. Sidekick, Richard Martin, was, I thought, a little on the dull side or, perhaps it would be fairer to say, the character he played was dull. There is, after all, only so much humour that can be squeezed from a long list of Mexican forenames and a penchant for pretty girls.

But that is a minor quibble........
