On the stagecoach to Laramie, Wayne Santley rescues singer Nora Brown from the advances of gambler Cole Fender. In Laramie, Wayne discovers his brother Brad is an outlaw, but he refuses to join the gang of rustlers and sets up a homestead. He and Nora are married. Later Brad repents and joins his brother, but Brad's former partner Pawnee organizes an attack on the brothers. Despite the source that seems to think so, this was not an M-G-M production. Written by

When the wounded Wayne and Nora are in brother Brad's cabin preparing to leave, you see the 'logs' of the wall behind them. Each log is perfectly straight, unvarying width, and has exactly the same coarse bark pattern as each of the others. See more »
Okay Western.made on a minuscule budget with a no-name cast. Actually the script is better developed than expected with a few surprising twists and turns, though you may need a score card to keep up. Palmer and Brown make convincing brothers with lots of the right chemistry, while plug-ugly Ron Soble looks the bad guy part, but has problems in the acting department. Joan Staley is lively as Brown's girl even though she suffers from a severe case of blonde hair. I wish the producers had earmarked more money for some of the sets, especially in the last half. Blending those cheap exteriors with actual location shots is clumsy, at best. Nonetheless, there's plenty of action and intrigue along with a spirited cast, as the brothers try to overcome their differences and settle into a regular family life. All in all, it's one of the better small budgeters made during that period when Westerns were all over both the little screen and the big one.
