Storyline

It's the last day on the job for Marshal Morg Rocklin who plans to get married. The new Marshal is due in town the next day. Unfortunately, a bunch of troublemakers are in town. Among them is rancher Joshua McCloud's no-good son who's bringing in a herd of cattle for sale. Immature, spoiled and quick tempered, the McCloud boy gets into an argument with his cowhands in the saloon and shoots one dead. The Marshal tries to arrest McCloud's son who draws on the lawman and gets killed. Postponing his wedding, the Marshal rides out to break the sad news to old rancher McCloud who has recently taken a young gold-digger wife. The old man drinks too much lately. The Marshal fears the worst for his meeting with the old rancher who doesn't yet know that his son was killed. To make matters worse, Bart Thorne, the McClouds' head ranch boss hates the Marshal and wants him dead. Written by nufs68

Embarrassingly bad western with one off-beat scene
13 November 2010 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

Embarrassingly bad western. With its cheesy titles, generic booming theme music, cheap production values and childish dialogue, it seemed liked a poor made-for-TV movie. It also hurt that the two main "stars," good guy Tony Young and bad guy Dan Duryea, were ridiculous extreme opposites -- Young was wooden and expressionless, and Duryea was his usual comic over-the-top scenery-eater. And then much of the action was implausible.

One scene in the movie deserves comment -- I had never seen anything like it in a western (or anywhere for that matter). The Jo Morrow character is a sexy young blonde married to an old widower for his money. (She throws herself at Young the moment she sees him, but I digress.) She is a main character, and is in love with Duryea, and the two of them run off with the widower's money and cattle herd (and some wranglers). A not-too-large group of Indians approach them and demand that they be given the woman, Morrow. The bad guys do NOT attempt to fight the Indians, and after a lame protest, they actually hand Morrow over to the Indians. She protests to no avail, the Indian carries her off on his horse, she fights him as best she can, and then the Indian drops her on the ground and kills and scalps her! (I had thought that the Indian had a sexual interest in Morrow. Not sure, but it seems most likely that he wanted her for her blonde scalp!) We never see any Indians again in the movie. So one off-beat scene in a silly routine western!
