Storyline

Just after the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln asks two former enemies--a Union officer and a former Confederate--to drive a herd of cattle from Texas to Kansas, to help feed civilians who are short of food. The journey is complicated by marauding Apache Indians and a gang of Mexican bandits who want the new Henry repeating rifles that the drovers will be carrying. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

A rather good little Columbia western

This movie was produced by Wallace Mc Donald, and not Sam Katzman, as we could have expected from a Columbia Pictures film. This not a corny western, but not a masterpiece, of course.

The story begins just after the civil war. President Lincoln asks former opponents in the conflict to take charge together of cattle between Texas and Kansas, for helping people to survive, bringing them some food. In that purpose, they will have to cross wild and savage countryside. Apache and Mexican bad men's territory. Nothing surprising here. We have already seen that a thousand times before. There is romance, lots of gunfights between cattle men and Indians.

A standard, routine programmer Fred S Sears certainly made to pay his gas and electricity bills.

Pay just attention to young Richard Jaeckel.
