Storyline

Columbia's 50th serial (between "Blackhawk" and "The Lost Planet") and made during the production season, 1952-53, when Clayton Moore left "The Lone Ranger" television series and was replaced by John Hart for a year. Story has frontier trouble-shooter Jim Scott seeking to put an end to the bloodshed between whites and Indians on the Western frontier. He is aided by Tulsa, the boss of a wagon train, and by frontier settlers Frank Baker and his sister Ann. A band of Apaches headed by Porico, son of Geronimo, continually attack the settlers, their wagon trains and a new stage line. In vain Jim seeks a meeting with Geronimo. A band of white renegades, led by Ace Devlin and Rance Rankin, manage to worsen the situation. After scores of savage battles and hair-raising escapes (14 to be exact, as Chapter 15, "The Peace Treaty," had no need for a cliffhanger), Jim succeeds in killing or capturing the outlaws, and convinces Porico to arrange a peace-accomplishing mission with Geronimo.

A great serial from the golden age ........
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clayton Moore stars in this great western serial that provides all the thrills, chills and cliffhangers that best characterized the genre. Moore, on temporary hiatus from his Lone Ranger role, tries to calm frontier hostilities between the son of the famed Indian leader Geronimo and local citizens.

As the heroic Moore works to bring peace with Geronimo's band, a band of local scoundrels moves to escalate hostilities. As can be imagined, wild chases, shootouts and fistfights are the exciting result.

This serial is one of the best of the 1950's. Clayton Moore excelled in this type of role, with great humor coupled with determined strength. This is grand entertainment and is highly recommended.
