After the whole North of the Equator freezes below zero, a group of people in Los Angeles risk their lives while trying to "escape" from the city's hostile conditions, in order to take a ship to a hotter place on Earth.
After the Civil War, Union Major Clanton captures survivors of Quantrill's Raiders, and gets them clemency at the cost of shooting a mob member. Convicted of murder by a kangaroo court, Clanton escapes and joins the former raiders in a gang devoted to robbing everything protected by the corrupt detective agency of his enemy Fowler; culminating in a personal showdown.

Throughout the first half of the film, Clanton is seen sliding down hills, crawling on the ground and riding horses that are kicking up dust; yet during the close-ups his Union uniform is always clean and crisp. See more »

Opening credits: "This story tells a forgotten chapter in the violent history of the West. Months after the tragic war between the States had ended there was still no peace on the Western Frontier." See more »
I really do enjoy the westerns made by RKO around this time.They seemed to include just about every outlaw roaming the west throughout a period of 100 years.They also employed just about every Western character actor available at the time.This even has the advantage of Technicolour which shows that this was clearly an A film.RKO had clearly decided that if Universal were going to throw all their horror characters in one film they would do the same in Westerns.They would of course make sure that most of the Badmen survived so they could use them in another film.For me the standout performance was of Walter Brennan.Any film with him had a big plus.Also that favourite Warner gangster Bart Mclane.
