Mexico, 1915. US bank robber Tom Bryan hopes to retire to Mexico, where the ever popular ex-revolutionary dictator, Pancho Villa, has been deposed and driven to his home province by another tyrant. Colonel Castro's band of loyal Villa-supporters hope to get him back in power so rob a gold train. Aboard is Bryan, who was secretly paid to help. Delivering the gold to Pancho by Yaqui country proves harder, as the Indians help with the federales (government troops) in pursuit. More dangers lurk. Written by
Shelley Winters in a typical western yarn set at the time of the uprising of the fiery Mexican Revolutionary Pancho Villa.
Gilbert Roland, as Castro, another fiery revolutionary is fascinating to watch. He has these types of parts well under his grip. Even the use of the word gringo can't be said better by anyone.
Gold is taken from a train to aid the revolution. Western star, Rory Calhoun, comes along for the ride as a American soldier of fortune, and Miss Winters portrays a woman of virtuous ideals, and full of love as well.
This is a story of betrayal and redemption.
The love triangle is there but is certainly not dominant in this film. Yes, there is lust and greed but it's revolution time!
