Corey Everett (Jeff Richards) has dug a well on a barren patch of land owned by wealthy land-baron John Rutherford (Harry Shannon) who so far had no interest in the property. But thanks to the new found water the land's value has increased considerably. This is enough reason for Rutherford to get rid off Everett. With a bunch of gunmen he sets out to get the dirty job done. Everett argues that having dug the well gives him the right to stay and work the place. Rutherford eventually accepts Everett's position but his second-in-command Avery (Dan Duryea) will stop at nothing to get the well for himself.
Dan Duryea shines in this gritty little western movie. He's a great villain in this one as he was in plenty of other films. Check out his performance in the classic western "Winchester '73" with James Stewart directed by Anthony Mann or in the seminal film-noir "Scarlet Street" with Edward G. Robinson directed by Fritz Lang.
It is obvious that this film here was shot on the cheap but that actually helps to give it the right feel. The barren dusty landscape reflects the mood of this western: live and let die.
I recommend "The Marauders" to fans of Dan Duryea, to lovers of tough westerns and film buffs who enjoy little known B-Movies.
