Storyline

Bart Calhoun is the nephew of Wells Fargo agent Rand Malloy and is double-crossing his uncle by working with Duke Winslow. Duke and a henchman try to hold up the stage carrying a $30,000 payroll, but are foiled by Johnny, the company guard following on horseback. Bart and Duke report the failure to an angry Jeff Grant who is working on buying $30,000 worth of smuggled silver bars from Mexico to resell at a higher price in the States. Malloy is held up that night and killed, and Bart's watch fob found in his hand convinces Johnny that he was involved. With the aid of Malloy's daughter Tess and Malloy ranch-foreman Wade Shelton, Johnny runs down the culprits. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Wendy Waldron to the rescue!
28 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

An average Johnny Mack Brown western. Despite a fair amount of location shooting and plenty of hard riding with running inserts, the action scenes do not come across very strongly. The story is an ordinary and familiar one and no attempt is made at characterization. Johnny is a bit paunchy here and is showing his age. The heroine, however, is an attractive lass named Wendy Waldron, and Myron Healey turns in his usual reliable study as the chief villain. Hank Bell is cast somewhat against type as the sheriff, and it's nice to see Pierre Watkin, if but briefly. The rest of the support cast doesn't amount to much. For once, Johnny doesn't have a comic relief — nor are there any musical interludes. The direction is competent, but undistinguished, and the same might be said for the other production credits with the exception of the music score which makes a welcome try for a bit of atmosphere. Production values, however, are very moderate.
