This is a solid B Western starring a surprisingly good performance from ex-Flash Gordon, ex-Tarzan, ex-Billy the Kid, Buster Crabbe, who doesn't just walk through the role of a gunfighter (like he did in most of the Billy the Kid B westerns he made in the 40's).In a fast-moving 70 minutes, you get a gunfighter, a preacher, and corrupt white guys trying to start an Indian war for profit, and it all works pretty well, thanks to a tight (if occasionally corny) script and solid if workmanlike direction from B Western veteran director Joseph Kane.
Nice performances by everyone involved too, especially John Smith as the preacher and Ted Corsia as the corrupt Indian Agent.
But the winning performance here is by character actor Tom Doucette, playing a slimy gunman with the fitting name of Pig.
