Jim Harvey is hired to guard a small wagon train as it makes its way west. The train is attacked by Indians and Harvey, hoping to persuade Aguila, the chief, to call off the attack due to Harvey's having saved his son's life, leaves the train to negotiate. He is captured and the rest of the train is wiped out except for two sisters. Escaping and showing up in town later, Harvey is nearly hanged as a deserter, but gets away. Eventually caught by the sheriff and his posse, they are attacked by Indians. This time the Indians are defeated and Aguila, captured and dying, reveals the identity of the white man who engineered the initial attack on the wagon train, just as the perpetrator rides up behind them.

Audy Murphy was always good at what he did and carries this oater along its familiar ground. The story is patchy and was given a far better treatment in 1948 with the more interesting "Relentless" (recommend this one in preference) The IB Technicolor that Universal often used is superb, as is the classy Cinematography by Award-winner Russel Metty ( Spartacus '60, The Misfits '61, A Woman's Vengeance '48). The cast are OK with some exceptions but the unusual horse offers the best element of interest.
There are far better Murphy westerns out there but those not overly demanding may enjoy this - if nothing better on offer.
