Storyline

Matt Wade escapes from prison and tries to persuade his brother Bill, a reformed gunslinger, to participate in a hold-up. Billy refuses but Matt frames him and he is forced to ride off with the gang. Billy fights with his brother and accidentally kills him, while Matt's teen-aged son, Ted, who thinks his father had been paroled from prison, sees the shooting. Returning to town to explain the true situation, Billy is almost lynched by the townsmen mob who think he was part of the robbery. He escapes and goes back to the gang, pretending to join them but actually looking for evidence to clear himself and turn gang leader, Ike Garvey, over to Marshal Sam Jennings. Only his fiancée Arlene knows of his plan. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

When the gang is on the hillside above the relay station near the end of the movie, there is an approximately 5-6 second shot of the gang looking down at the station, and in the last 2-3 seconds of the clip, the film is running backward. An outlaw on horseback appears at the bottom of the screen moving forward to join the gang, and when the film reverses he clearly backs up. Also, a branch is visible at the left of the screen bending downward in a gust of wind, and when the film reverses and the horse backs up, the branch moves in the opposite direction. See more »

Quotes

Billy Wade: They're talkin' about a half million in cash. That kind of money doesn't lie around loose.
George Landon: No, not often, Billy. Just once in a while, when they run short of cash around here and the bank has a big shipment from the Federal Reserve in San Francisco.
Billy Wade: Yeah, I remember those hauls, those Wells Fargo wagons from Benton - twenty shotgun and rifle guards.
George Landon: No. They only use six guns now - since you retired.

Five Tons to Tombstone
30 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is not a very good movie. The story line is really lame. One character shows up in town after a bank holdup in which he was not involved - but one of the robbers said he was, so when he comes to town everyone is ready to hang him immediately based on the say-so of a robber who WAS there robbing the bank. Not very likely. And when Ike Garvey opens the strongboxes full of cash onto an uneven-surface rock, what was he thinking? I could just see the money falling off and all over the place. Worst of all perhaps, I had to feel sorry for the horses - 3/4 of the actors in this film were somewhere between chubby and downright obese. Ike Garvey (again), the main bad guy, was particularly huge - from the back he looked just like his horse. I think his gun belt was full of Tootsie Rolls where there normally would be bullets. Anyhow, I've actually seen worse Westerns, but offhand I can't think which one(s). This movie is really lukewarm; the only actor I liked at all was James Brown, who was the marshal in the movie Gun Street. He plays a pretty good 'perturbed by life' Western character. The rest of 'em can all go to Weight Watchers.
