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 »

A Solid Western
17 February 2002 | by (Independence, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Dynamite Pass is an enjoyable western. Although like all "B " westerns it had less than a substantial budget, it enjoys a good cast, storyline, and scenery. Whether starring in an "A" or "B" feature, the presence of Tim Holt usually guaranteed a worthwhile viewing experience. He had screen presence that is sadly lacking in most actors today.
