Storyline

Ex-lumberjack Brad Collins (Dennis Morgan) and mining engineer Grady Mathews (William Talman) find uranium in the Colorado badlands. While Grady guards the claim, Brad goes to register it in town, where he meets and marries Jean Williams (Patricia Medina.) Returning to the claim, Brad learns that Jean was once Grady's fiancee, which is not a big stretch of the arm of coincidence in Sam Katzman's Clover Productions. Grady, as one would expect, is somewhat put out and leaves the mine in Brad's hands, while he hooks up with a confidence man and engineers a scheme to break the back of Brad's somewhat rapidly-created mining empire.

Pre horror W.Castle, worth a look.
29 December 2013 | by (Co. Kerry Ireland) – See all my reviews

I am adding reviews for all films I've seen that currently lack one, this I have just seen today, review follows... 'Two guys team up to stake a claim during a Uranium strike, they find a claim, one guy minds the find, the other goes to town to file the claim, when he returns he has married his partners girl! Its rather daft, and there are many unlikely events, but it's fast moving and fun to watch at little over the hour mark.' I caught it as it's a W.Castle film, can't say I'm familiar with any of the cast members. As I need to 'pad' I would add that I think you can see here examples of the W.Castle style that he would let rip in his horror films, he was a showman, and this is a 'showy' film, I think W.Castle completists will enjoy.
