Storyline

Fur-trapper Shawn Garrett gets out of a horse-stealing charge in a small, frontier town by agreeing to buy the horse with a gold nugget. This nugget attracts the attention of a man named McCracken who, with his gang, secretly follows Garrett across the desert in the hope of finding the source of his gold. Garrett joins up with his partner, Jim Rainbolt, and together they manage to hold off McCracken's gang long enough to hide their gold before seeking refuge in the hacienda of a landowner named Gondora. Gondora soon finds out about the gold, however, and Rainbolt and Garrett now find themselves in a fight to save their gold and their lives as well. Written by dinky-4

Goofs

When Jim Rainbolt (Clint Walker) and Shaun Garrett (Roger Moore) slide a little ways down the mountain and each hide behind their own boulder to confront their pursuers, they raise a cloud of dust. Immediately after stopping behind their respective boulders, they are both shown individually in close-up peering from behind the boulders with no dust around them at all, and immediately after that they are both shown again in the same frame behind their boulders with the dust cloud all around them that they had just raised.

Quotes

Doc Wilson Gates, MD: You're kinda fond of that young feller, ain't ya?
Jim Rainbolt: Sort of used to him after three years. He's got a knack for getting us into trouble and his mouth is too big for his size sometimes, but there ain't nobody I'd rather have backing me.

Clint "Cheyenne" Walker on the big screen
21 May 1999 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Warner Bros. tried to turn some of its TV stars into movie stars but with limited success. Clint Walker was one who couldn't seem to make the transition which, in retrospect, is rather surprising. After all, the "Cheyenne" actor looked mighty good on the big screen and had a pleasantly easy-going personality but even solid westerns such as this one never caught on with most of the movie-going public. Perhaps the glut of TV westerns in the late '50s and early '60s had something to do with it.

Based on a 1957 novel ("Desert Guns") by prolific western writer, Steve Frazee, "Gold of the Seven Saints" was the third collaboration between Clint Walker and director Gordon Douglas. Together they'd made "Fort Dobbs" in 1958 and "Yellowstone Kelly" in 1959. "Gold" is easily the best of the three, benefitting from Joe Biroc's impressive black-and-white photography and from the unforced camaraderie between taciturn Walker and talkative Moore. Despite their occasional squabbling, one senses an abiding affection between these two and thus one can understand why the beauteous Leticia Roman can't lure either of them away. Clint's famous 48" chest is briefly on display here in all its hirsute glory when he bathes in a large barrel but it's co-star Roger Moore who gets to sweat in the "beefacke-bondage" scene. Stripped to the waist and staked out on the ground, Moore has strips of wet rawhide tied around his chest -- strips which will shrink in the sun and thus "encourage" him to tell the bad guys where his gold is hidden.

(In Frazee's book an entire, freshly-cut hide is completely wrapped around the victim but doing so in the movie would probably cause the audience to go "Ick!" and besides, it'd hide Roger Moore's bare chest from view.)
