Storyline

A formula brawling-buddies western where one goes bad and then returns to the fold. Pete Menlo owns some gold claims in Nevada where he is joined by his old friend Andy Martin. Crooked mine-owner Bannon wants to merge their interests so they can create a monopoly but is turned down. Pete is interested in "Nevada" Wray, daughter of mine-owner "Jackpot" Wray, but she has eyes only for Andy. The rejected Pete joins forces with Bannon and they learn that, because of location, "Jackpot" Wray may be the owner of all the gold in the respective veins. Bannon and his men try to get rid of Andy. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A pretty good Universal western

Once more, I am surprised that little western has not be commented yet.

I think it's a pretty good one, colorful, action packed, with famous actors such as Lex Barker, Howard Duff, John Mc Entire as good as ever and Leo Gordon, the bad guy, of course, the "heavy one".

Gunfights, fists fights, mine scenes, ...This little movie was a really good surprise to me.

Its the rarest Jesse Hibbs western available. Because there is not Audie Murphy in it?

Anyway, this feature doesn't deserve to be ignored. Not at all.

I saw it from a 16mm print, perhaps no TV broadcast has aired it yet...
