Storyline

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. When the wagonmaster hired for the trip learns of the businessman's duplicity and tries to set things right before the Indians go on the warpath, the businessman's henchmen are ordered to kill him.

Quotes

Rawlins: Hey, wait a minute! Take a look at those hills. They're painted for war!
George Keane: Looks like they found out about our visit to their little camp. Well, they don't want us. If they did, they'd be after us by now. I bet they're on the way to Fort Osage.
Rawlins: Fort Osage? There's not enough of them there to get past the saloon!
George Keane: Yeah, it's probably a suicide raid. They don't care if they get killed or not. Well, it's Clay's problem now, not ours.

Okay
24 June 2015 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Not nearly as bad as some reviewers say. Some of them must have something personal against director Lesley Selander, namely reviewer Len Maltin who trashes every movie Selander makes.

Rod Cameron tries to instill some honesty into an entrepreneur (badly played by Morris Ankrum, as usual). Dorothy Adams is cute with an intelligent script and some good action sequences thrown in. Barbara Woodell appears as a victimized pioneer wife.

Watch this because you like the old westerns, not because you listen to the crappy reviews of biased critics like Len Maltin.... Maltin never says anything bad about the no-talent Tom Cruise, either.

Too bad Maltin can't always put his personal feelings aside and give us a true competent review.
