Reva: Now what's this all about anyway?
Cibo Pearlo: [Referring to Larry] Sometimes I can't help but feel that in him you see all the things I'm not.
Reva: I never gave you any cause to think that.
Cibo Pearlo: No, you were too smart for that but not smart enough to realize he'd have nothing to do with your sort... but me... well, I always liked leftovers.

In a good western Scott is the ideal western hero.
25 June 2011 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a good Randolph Scott western , good plot, good scene of the Land Rush plenty of action scenes, colorful, two pretty actresses Dorothy Malone and Peggie Castle, where Castle outshines Malone. If you saw this western in the fifties you would certainly agree that you got your money's worth, it sure delivers all you could expect from a pre Boetticher Scott western. Scott gives one of his best performances as Larry Madden, a tough, quiet, well developed character the ideal western hero. Paul Richatd as "The Peso Kid" makes us nostalgic of the "bandidos" in the old westerns. Lesley Selander, the director, had a lot of practice in this genre, remember Hopalong Cassidy?
