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 »
Another title for this mess could be "The Kindergarten Class Gets Drunk and Directs a Western". The major expense in this film was the laundry and cleaning bill. It is difficult to realize that someone seriously created this movie seriously. It is a laugh a minute, or even every 30 seconds. Ed Wood lives!!! PRC wouldn't have put this thing out! Supreme would have rejected it. Al (Fuzzy) St. John would refuse to act in this movie! Alabi Terhune (don't forget Elmer!) would run away screaming if asked to appear in this thing. That's why it is worth watching. "Plan 9 From Outer Space" is Oscar-worthy compared to this. This is a "I can't believe this s..." a minute movie. So, if Encore Westerns EVER brings it back, make it a MUST SEE on your list. You'll come away convinced that you're Anthony Mann or D. W. Griffith or some other great director. It is really fun to watch though as long as you possess the proper frame of mind!
