He then learns the Sheriff was his partner in that robbery but escaped. It appears the Sheriff has hidden the money and Whip now tries to trick him to revealing it's location. Written by

Watching this old picture on TV I was surprised to hear the title music which was more familiar as the theme for the Dale Robertson TV western series 'Tales of Wells Fargo'. I believe two different themes were used
one by Harry Warren - for this long-running TV show and the Night
Raiders title music was presumably adapted for one of them. Perhaps the film itself is only a B picture although with a somewhat unusual plot but at least the music is worthy of better things. Raoul Kraushaar composed the music for Night Raiders which was released a few years before Tales of Wells Fargo appeared. Strange how music can stir memories after fifty years.
