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. Written by Les Adams <>

Did You Know?


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 »

Complete Cahoots
27 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It's engineer Regis Toomey and his wife Lynne Roberts who are in need of a lot of help in constructing a new road and they get it from those two gallant knights of the plains, Tim Holt and Richard Martin. Toomey's drinking and suspicions about his wife's faithfulness isn't helping to get the job done.

The local Ponderosa owner John Dehner has a road that everyone has to pay a heavy duty toll to use. Not good when you want to make a profit on your ranch cattle and farm products if you're a homesteader and Dehner's not squeamish about the methods he uses to collect and enforce.

Merchant Robert Shayne is supposed to be with the people who buy at his store, but he's in complete cahoots with Dehner and the two are not dumb villains. They give Holt and Martin a good run.

As you can guess by the title, dynamite plays a part in the climax of the film. Dynamite Pass is a good action filled Tim Holt western.
