It's just after the Civil War and a railroad is expanding westward. Saloon owner Stewart brings in rifles hidden in whisky barrels and gives them to the Indians to attack the construction crew. He is trying to get the railroad to change it's route and go through his town. Posing as a telegrapher, railroad agent Granger arrives to see if he can stop the railroad's troubles. Written by

In the final battle between the railroad crew and the Indians at the end of the movie, when the Indians are finally driven off and turn away to ride off, the firing from the railroad camp immediately stops, the Indians at the front wheel their horses around and begin galloping in the opposite direction away from the camp, and after several strides, suddenly two Indians closest to the camera pitch headfirst off their horses like they'd been shot, only there is no more gunfire.

Well, that's my hotel over there. It's usually full up, but I can take care of you now that Mr. Holly is changing his room.
Wrong. Holly isn't changing his room. He checked out.
No, he'll be occupying the downstairs rear. You see, I'm also the Oaktown's undertaker. And having my establishment on the premises, well, it saves so many steps.

Very poor Western in every way. Big waste of time.
I see that there are no reviews here so I'll add my two-cents. This was a very poor Western in just about every way. It deserves its 5.0 rating average. I usually like the stars, Jock Mahoney and Peggie Castle. Here they were attractive, anyway. Everything else about the film was cheap, unrealistic, actually embarrassing. Mahoney is known as a stunt man early in his career; here his fistfights were awkwardly staged acrobatic doings. Westerns that have battle-winning ploys at the end of throwing sticks of dynamite or lighting brush fires are a sure sign of a ludicrous movie, and the former was used here. The basic story (the bad guy's plot)seemed pretty thin and unworkable to me.
