It's 1893 and gold is being smuggled out of the country. Instead of stealing gold bars, the outlaws are stealing high grade ore, having it smelted, and then having it plated to look like lead. The Government sends agents Bret and Larry who arrive in Cripple Creek posing as Texas gunfighters. Bret finds the smelting operation and Larry learns of the payoff. But the crooked town Marshal is suspicious of the two men and the reply of his inquiry to Texas exposes them putting their lives in danger. Written by

Very sad affair...but it's the best night's business we've had for some time. I can make a very attractive club rate for six.
Marshal John Tetheroe:
Well, Silver, you can lock up now. The corpus delicti have been identified and Hawkins here offers a very good club rate -- six coffins, no flowers, no mourners.

George Montgomery, Jerome Courtland and Richard Egan are undercover agents in the old west trying to break a gold smuggling ring working out of the town of Cripple Creek.
This is good, solid western entertainment. It's a buddy- western, shoot-em-up, fist-fight, and midnight rides type movie. I found it to be well paced, written and acted. It has some plot twists that make it more adultish than the usual kid-western fodder.
For the western movie fan, there's alot of other familiar faces among the cast, and everyone gives a fine performance.
This has been on Encore's Western Channel. Catch it if you can without commercials, it's so much better.
