Storyline

An army officer is sent to Laramie to find out why all progress on the railroad has stopped. He finds drink plentiful not only in town but at the railhead, with an old pal of his behind it all. It become obvious the two will tangle, but the soldier unexpectedly finds an ally in the ex-dance hall girl until now involved with the no-good booze peddler.

Ridin' the rails .......
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Payne stars in this 1954 sagebrush saga, which also features several western favorites as co-stars. The railroad sends a representative to get to the bottom of a gang's attempts to disrupt the rail-lines.

The film is well-paced and Payne is a good choice to play the lead role. Dan Duryea steals many of the scenes he appears in and the great Lee Van Cleef was fine in his all too brief supporting role.

Payne appeared in a number of Westerns in the '40's and '50's, but was never able to reach the same success as John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart or Glenn Ford had in the genre. This film was a good example of his work and should be enjoyed by die-hard Western movie fans........
