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.

Did You Know?

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 »

Indiscernible, though study, Tim Holt western vehicle
21 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tim Holt plays Ross Taylor (not Tim Holt) and Richard Martin returns as his loyal companion Chito Rafferty for another indiscernible Holt western vehicle. Like most of Holt's corny low budget westerns, he's far too good of an actor for these pictures, which are a stones throw away from being an episode of The Cisco Kid or The Lone Ranger, with the plot revolving around feuding factions over the creating of a new road. Shootouts, barroom brawls, and chases on horseback ensue. Still, I'm fascinated by Holt, who has some staggeringly good performances in films like "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and "The Magnificent Ambersons" and could easily have had a career making prestige pictures, but instead chose a career as a B-picture western star (although maybe this was he more lucrative choice of the two, which I certainly couldn't fault him for).
