Ordway's daughter Corinna, believing Madden to be the cause of the family's recent misfortunes, is unaware that the local saloon owner also has designs upon the Ordway holdings. Written by

Obvious stunt double for Larry Madden (Randolph Scott) in the fight scene with the deputy under the wagon. As the wagon moves forward and the deputy grabs onto the wagon from beneath it and as the wagon clears them, it pulls them along behind it, the stunt double looks up and you can see his face, which is clearly not Randolph Scott. In addition, the double's hair is dark while Scott's hair is silvery gray. Neither the shirt nor trousers that the double is wearing match what Madden is wearing. The brown dirt stains on the double's clothes from the fight are not duplicated on Scott's clothes, and the double's gun belt is turned all the way around during the fight so that the buckle is at his back, while the shots showing Scott as Madden have the gun belt still correctly oriented.

You forget on thing... a man's pride.
That's something a woman can't answer.
If I had to pick a woman who could understand, I'd pick you.

What's a girl like you doin' tied in with a dog like Pearlo?
Sometimes you can get sort of attached to a dog.

In a good western Scott is the ideal western hero.
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?
