Storyline

Francie Landereaux is one of 29 women on a voyage to California on a barter-bride deal in which any qualified man can buy a wife. Unknown to the sponsors, she is already married to a man who has deserted her and she is on the voyage to find him. The husband is a wanted man and Shard Benton captures him in Panama for the reward. When the ship reaches California, Francine takes a job with Monty Breed, an old enemy of Benton. The husband returns and is killed by Breed. Benton and Breed gamble with Francine at stake.

A good old R G Springsteen from the hidden store.

As usual with Republic Pictures movies from these years, this film is a mix up of western, romance, adventure, with a pinch of comedy. Costumes more than Indians or gunslingers. No stampede or pursuit either.

But there is some bad guys. And a gal, lots of gals. You'll find here the usual scheme of the lead female character - Vera Ralston - torn between two men: Scott Brady and David Brian. Good story, classic one. But we can prefer William Wellman's WESTWARD THE WOMEN, concerning westerns starring a bunch of women in search of husbands.

But can we compare the talented, the great Wellman and the only not so bad B director Springsteen?

Can we?
