a good Saturday afternoon movie, 6 March 2001
Author: Tony Rome from Long Island, New york

This film is a good Saturday afternoon western. Randolph Scott attempts to build a railroad between Carson City, and Virginia City. He must battle with an assortment of evil men, his own workers, and his step brother. I give this western an 8 out of 10 for its story, and its action.
