Sheriff Plummer and his men are using their badges to easily rob gold shipments and kill the drivers. Marshal McDowell and his men are looking for the killers. They catch one who is murdered to keep from talking but his killer is identified as Plummer's Deputy. Plummer is still not suspected when McDowell's wife is kidnaped and the outlaws demand the big gold shipment be sent unguarded. So McDowell heads out alone to face the gang with a load of gunpowder instead of gold and only a few trusted Deputies nearby. Written by

Early in the film, there's a gunfight between the 'Gooodies' and the 'Baddies' out in the hills. The camera cuts alternatively between each person shooting at each other. It is plainly obvious that the scene was shot with two completely different backdrops and then spliced together. See more »
I realise that the "10 then there's 10" review is an attempt at humour but its silliness goes too far. Worse than "Plan 9 ..."? Hardly. Sure, the acting is generally on the wooden side but Guy Mitchell's villain is good and a cut above the average for a B western. "Wild westerners" has other merits - for example. 1 - location: anyone tired of watching exteriors shot at Alabama Hills, Lone Pine is tired of life. All that granite! 2 - colour: OK, not Technicolor, but good Eastmancolor. 3 - Duane Eddy's guitar music: an influence on Ennio Morricone? 4 - Jerome Thoms' editing: an Oscar nominated editor, Thoms' work is exemplary and his cutting between medium shots of the stars and long shots of the stunt people is worthy of inclusion in a film editing course.
