A great serial from the golden age ........, 7 July 2006
Author: revdrcac from United States

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.
