20th Century fox western
10 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not a bad film, low budget, but fine location shots. Gene Nelson plays a b0unty hunter who kills the man he is seeking, but he has to bury him as his horse becomes lame and is unable to haul the dead body back to town. Meanwhile, another bounty hunter ( Kent Taylor) comes across the burial site and goes to town to make his claim for the money. Th3 sheriff ( Russ Bender) decides to take them both back to the burial site to settle the matter. The grave is in Apache territory and they don't want either man to have the body in the grave. Needless to say, a battle breaks out between the Apaches and the bounty hunters and their companions.
