Storyline

Gil Kyle finds himself caught up in the politics and unrest of the American Civil War and soon gets himself framed for a murder. His only alibi is Candace Bronson, who is aiding the Confederate cause and has left the territory to deliver a vital message about a Yankee gold shipment. So he sets off in pursuit, running into desperados, government agents, and guerrilla fighters, who are more interested in profit than ideals. Written by Alfred Jingle

Solidly entertaining Civil War saga !
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Glenn Ford is a living legend who seemed born to the saddle. On display in this film (once again) is his strong, yet amiable cowboy screen persona. Rhonda Fleming is well cast here and the storyline is interesting but not overly complicated. Pacing and script development are well done.

While this is not Ford's best western, it does show why he was so successful in the saddle. He presents a strong presence in the film, without taking himself too seriously.

It was great to see Alan Reed as the Condererate Colonel. ( Reed was the longtime voice of Fred Flintstone !!)
