Express company agent Lex Barker and sheepman Stephen McNally are reluctant allies and rivals for the hand of Mara Corday. Allies they have to be against three brothers John Dehner, Myron Healey, and Warren Stevens who not only are responsible for a whole lot of crimes, but Dehner is an ambitious man. He's embarked on a political career that has him running against local sheriff Trevor Bardette. A lot of what they're robbing is for his campaign expenditures, not for this, but because Dehner wants to be governor. Can't say he's not ambitious. Dehner's the brains and Healey and Stevens are the muscle end of the organization.
It's your average shoot 'em up western with an interesting political twist to the proceedings. The climax involves a shootout where the whole town seems to be involved. It's putting a real crimp into the scheduled election for sheriff.
Western fans should like this.
