Sharpshooters Zack Thomas and Joe Jarrett are in a Texan stage-coach and manage to fight off Matson's robber gang, so afterward they can fight over the $100,000 cash carried by a railroad official. Both make it to Galveston, where each, including vexed Matson, meets up with respective accomplices in various dirty schemes. The money keeps changing hands and the scene shifts to a river boat, which should multiply the winnings as a casino, but the crooks and bullets follow. Written by
The riverboat 'Sultana' shares the same name of an overloaded Mississippi riverboat side-wheeler that exploded and sunk on April 27, 1865 transporting Union troops returning from Confederate prison camps during the closing days of the Civil War. See more »

I watched this movie for one reason only: because I like Dean Martin. Frank Sinatra Made the deal a little sweeter. The story wasn't comparable to other westerns (John Wayne, Randy Scott, etc.), but, for some reason, I found it interesting. Some of Dean's best roles were with John Wayne, but, in this picture, he played what appeared to me to be a very lovable "good guy". Many people say that the best scene is the one with the 3 Stooges, which is fairly accurate, but I must be a Dean Martin junkie. I have also heard people say that his best roles were in the movies where he appeared as Martin from the great comedy duo "Martin & Lewis". I have found, however, that, no matter how much he "drinks" in movies, he is an awesome actor, and an even better singer! Remember this: people used to ridicule him for drinking on stage and on film, but, hey, Ron White has had to stop in the middle of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour to refill his glass. You know his is real, because his jokes actually seem to get better as he goes along. And, no one really says anything about it.
Overall, I'd say you have to be a big fan of Dean and Frank to enjoy this film, or someone who loves watching those sort of "off-beat" westerns.
