Storyline

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 <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Although not officially a remake, United Artists' 1961 film Gun Street (1961) is based on this film. Their plots are very similar and the writers for both films are the same. See more »

Goofs

When the stagecoach gets held up early in the movie, they are on a large dirt road and the team of horses is taken from the coach. As they camp that night, a large rock appears next to the rear wheel of the coach. This is an obvious interior shot much different from the earlier exterior shot. See more »

More Complexity than Usual for a B-Western of the 1950's
5 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Gone Bad and Always Good Brothers are the Cliché that Propels this B-Western featuring an Aging, but Still in Shape, Buster Crabbe and the always Slimy Neville Brand who made a Career of Playing Really Bad Guys and Psychopaths.

In this one Brand is Up for the Challenging Role with more than One Dimension. His Scenes with Crabbe as Duling Opposites are Profound and Captivating. Michael Sansara as one of the Gang Members is the Really Bad Guy in this Above Average Low-Budget Western that also Includes a Couple of Strong Female Characters.

Ann Robinson as a Saloon Singer and Lita Milan as a Squaw used by the Outlaws as a Bartered for Flesh Slave add a Complexity not usually associated with these Throwaway Second Features . There are some Gun-Battles for the Action Oriented that are Well Staged and Soul Redeeming in Outcome.

Overall, more Goes On here than in the Standard Type for the Genre in the 50's. It's an Oft Told Tale Told with Heart and Bravado. It's Wrap Up is Wrapped Around that Baby Boomer Mantra so Prevalent for its Time, but has the Extra Ingredient of a Man who had Lost His Way but finds the Way Back to His Sibling, who was always "His Brothers Keeper", in Mind and Spirit.
