A greedy businessman is charging outrageous prices to homesteaders who wish to join a wagon train he's organizing to travel from Missouri to California. Meanwhile, he has broken the treaty his predecessor made with the Osage Indians to provide trade goods in return for passage across the Native Americans' land.

Now wait a minute! You're the only guide in this part of the country that knows the Osage country. Our expenses have gone up. We've had to charge higher rates. You're going to get a raise, too.
I couldn't use it! There's not enough money minted to pay for that. I've seen the Osages on the warpath.
All right. All right, Clay. No hard feelings. But before you go, let me give you a little friendly advice...

This a nice B western about a wagon master trying to make wrong a right done by the businessman behind a wagon drive.
I can't say I'm familiar with any of the films made by the lead Rod Cameron. Although lacking the gravitas of the great cowboy actors he does a decent job as the righteous good guy. The rest of the cast are more than adequate.
The plot is pretty standard but it comes with a healthy amount of the required fist fights, horse chases and shootouts with the obligatory romantic interlude tucked in for good measure. It's all filmed in vivid colours which give the film a nice if dated feel.
This is no Hign Noon and holds few surprises but it is sharply scripted, well acted and enjoyable. For those that like old westerns this is well worth watching.
