Storyline

Jeff Curtis (Rod Cameron), a wagon-master on his way to accept the job of leading a pioneer train from Joplin, Missouri to the Oregon territory, picks up Ben Wilkins (Michael Chapin), a young boy who has run away from the train because train captain Cyrus Cook (Frank Ferguson) wouldn't allow him to take his dog on the trip. He meets Ben's sister, Ann (Peggy Castle), and this leads to a conflict with Cook's nephew, Clay (Henry Brandon), who has his own plans for Ann that does not include her kid brother and his dog. The trip west has a lot of problems, mostly Indian raids by a tribe who are buying rifles from two members of the wagon train. Which two? Rest assured it ain't the kid and his dog.

Classic tale of the conquest of the west

Nothing really new here, in this B picture directed by a B movie director: Ford Beebe, a veteran serial maker. It is beautiful done, shot on locations, with beautiful pictures, convincing characters, and a predictable story, with Rod Cameron as the wagon master. It won't bring anything to John Ford or Raoul Walsh's films. Cinecolor enhances more the quality of this early 50's movie.

What could I say more? The plot line has explained enough the topic of this western very hard to catch.

Beebe made here probably one of his biggest budget movies, except the serials. Or maybe one or two Bomba series films. But those were shot entirely in studios.
