When the boy is driving the wagon and the men are shooting at it, in the shot from the rear it is clear an adult stuntman was used. The amount of his back seen is much higher above the rail than when the boy was shown driving the wagon. See more »
Typical 1950's studio western movie. Simple and warm story that can please the kids of that era, when they go to the movie house saturday afternoon. Here, a young boy, who had great admiration for his dad, discovers that the old man is an outlaw. That breaks his heart, of course. But the dad had some secrets... In fact, he's a spy for the law, and he's riding with two outlaws to knows who's the boss of the gang (and, of course, that man is an important citizen of the village.) Joel McCrae, that great great actor of western, did a very fine job in this pleasant B-Movie flick.
