Storyline

Loner Cody trades with the Comanches to get a white girl released. He is joined on his way back to the girl's husband by an outlaw and his sidekicks. It turns out there is a large reward for the return of the girl, and with the Indians on the warpath and the outlaw being an old enemy of Cody's, things are set for several showdowns.

Trivia

There are numerous mentions of the "Stage to Lordsburg," the original title of John Ford's western classic, "Stagecoach", to which writer Kennedy is obviously showing homage. See more »

Goofs

When Cody pulls the saddle off his now fallen horse and flings it at a Comanche, unseating him, he doesn't take the time to unbuckle the cinch. Without doing that, the saddle would never have come off. See more »

Quotes

Dobie: I still don't like it. My folks brought me up to be kind to a woman. You know, yes ma'am... no ma'am. Open doors for them. Give them my chair. Not go around killing them.

Your basic solid western with a twist ending
20 June 1999 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

A magazine article recently cited this movie as an underrated western. I certainly agree. Randolph Scott made his best westerns in the latter part of his career, and this is one of those. The movie examines the old west moral code of right v. wrong and raps up with a surprising twist ending that gives cynicism a kick in the rear end. Not a big splashy western, but a solid little one.
