A group of outlaws posing as Southern sympathizers and led secretly by freight-line owner Jim Maroon are raiding stagecoaches, and this is a threat to the Union communications. Grif Holbrook, a trouble-shooter for the Butterfield Stage Line, and Union man Barney Broderick team up to try and put a stop to the activity, when they aren't fighting over the charms of Kate Crocker.

Stage to Tucson was the ideal western to see on a weekend afternoon in the fifties. It did not have one hero, but two: Rod Cameron, who was getting a bit old and Wayne Morris a young guy who was always smiling. Just before the civil war starts their mission is to find out who is stealing all the stagecoaches. They are also in love with the same woman. The film is in color and had a more expensive production than an average B western. There are plenty of stagecoaches and a particular one that is the precursor of a war tank. Before action movies meant car, boat or motorcycle chases, people used to have fun with horses and stagecoaches, and this is one of the best of that kind.
