Murphy deserts the Union Army to warn former Texas neighbors of impending Indian attacks triggered by Army massacre. He overcomes initial distrust and convinces the homesteaders (all women whose men are away fighting in the Confederate Army) to take refuge in an abandoned mission. He trains them to fight and shoot in anticipation of the attack. The only other man at the mission runs away o save his scalp and ends up leading the Indians back to the mission. Surrounded and outnumbered, the defenders prepare for the final assault.. Written by
The man who left the mission did not tell the Indians about the women at the mission. That was done by three "bad guys" he told. As was usual for movies of the 50's, they came to bad end. The theme is a morality play as were most westerns. It was also of interest to see Kathryn Grayson before she married Bing Crosby. There is little to give one a reason to watch except for nostalgia. It must have been released as a "B" movie even though Audie Murphy was a star of sorts. For an hour of time requiring suspension of belief and no worries about thinking, this is just the one to watch. I would rate it as a five at most! You can probably catch it on cable on the Western Channel.
