Chad Santee heads west to join his brother, Jubal, who supposedly has a large cattle ranch. On the way he meets Rose Fargo and rescues her from the unwanted advances of a gambler, "Blackjack". When Chad and Rose arrive they find that Jubal and his partner, Shawnee, are really rustlers and outlaws. Jubal tries to get Chad to join them but he refuses, and leaves to set up his own homestead with Rose at his side. Later, the repentant Jubal comes to join him. Shawnee, angry at what he considers a double-cross, attacks the brothers with his gang. Written by Les Adams <>

A Surprise!
22 January 2008 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

I wasn't going to watch this one when I read the brief synopsis on the TV menu, however it was a cold day, so I thought-"What the heck." I was truly surprised. I wasn't expecting much from a low B flick featuring a beyond-the-prime Buster Crabbe. However, there was a lot to be said for this little effort. First of all the cast is simply great...Neville Brand, Michael Ansara, the sexy Lita Milan, the young and gorgeous Ann Richardson, even a young Slim Pickens! The plot is an old one, the older brother returns from the wars to discover that younger brother is in league with the baddies. But the acting and limited production values maintain interest throughout.

A pleasant surprise on a cold afternoon.
