Storyline

In 1890 Minnesota Christine Powell is the scheming head of the Powell dynasty, the richest mining empire of the era. But the Powell mine deposits are diminishing. The Mesabi range represents a whole new productive area but the rights to mine there are held by a young geological engineer, Kyle Ramlo. The latter reaches an impasse when he needs money to continue his experimentation with open-pit mining and goes to Miss Powell for financing. She displays great interest in both his inventive mining method and in him personally but secretly plots to destroy him and take over his Masabi rights. The gullible Ramlo falls into clutches while the girl he really loves, Cathy Norlund, tries desperately to open his eyes to Christine's scheme. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Typical Republic western for this period

I consider it as a typical Republic western production.

In fact, it is a western without being a western. It takes place in Minnesota, not really the same location as Arizona, Texas or New Mexico, or even Oregon...

There is much costumes, indoors, talk; so, it's more a melodrama than a western as we used to see elsewhere. I saw many Republic movies such this one before. See for instance Allan Dwan's "Belle Le Grand", or Jo Kane's Flame of the Barbary Coast or his other movies in the late 40's...

No many gunfights, dust, Indians or cavalry.

But not all Republic westerns were like that. Only a dozen at most. As far as I know...

You'll note that the music score remembers "Love Me Tender"'s one.

Rod Cameron and Jim Davis are as good as ever.
