Some actors like Wayne Morris occupied important place in movies usually simple and predictable final script, but very pleased that a young audience. Came on his trail, then Rory Calhoun, Dale Robertson, Audie Murphy, Randolph Scott, Joel McCrea, Robert Mitchum, Fred MacMurray, Jock Mahoney and others. The film is very nice with a very good photograph, a real gem of the 50s.
