An undercover cavalry detachment must deliver a shipment of rifles across Apache land. It doesn't help that the lieutenant is closer to a whiskey bottle than to his men.
Some good ideas in the screenplaythe quarreling two male leads (Carey & Kennedy), the "wounded" Indian infiltrator, the treacherous parson (Dumke). Trouble is the cheap budget restricts filming to cramped LA area, when a much larger landscape is needed. Then too, I agree with reviewer aimless-46: the shootout at the end is the most clumsily staged I've seen. And I've seen a ton. But then they're in Bronson Canyon (familiar from dozens of sci- fi's), which doesn't provide much room to maneuver. Note also how the Parson (Dumke) provides wives, and not hookers, even though the latter makes more sense for the footloose men. That distinction, however, makes the service acceptable to the Production Code of the time. Too bad the fine noir actress Audrey Totter is wasted in an apparently tacked-on role, likely for marquee value. Anyway, the screenplay is not without imaginative ideas, along with a commanding performance from the always reliable Douglas Kennedy. Nevertheless, the lowly budget, plus uneven acting (Carey and Donnell) undercuts too much of that potential, resulting in a highly erratic oater.
