When Chad Lucas (Audie Murphy) leads the posse after the outlaws who have abducted Warren Stevens' girl he has a rifle holstered on the right under his saddle with the butt of the rifle next to the rump of the horse. He uses the rifle to fight off Apaches in some subsequent scenes. After the Apache attack Warren Stevens hands him his rifle and he mounts the horse rifle still in hand. When the scene switches, the rifle is back in the scabbard/holster. In one of the following scenes, the group ride up to a campfire used by the outlaws. The right side of Chad's horse can be clearly seen in a fairly close shot, and the rifle is not in it's holster, and Chad does not have it in his hand. Whoever on the set was responsible for seeing that Audie's gear was ready for the scene neglected to check this very important item. Once the posse starts to climb up the mountain the rifle is once again safely ensconced in its receptacle. See more »

This movie might have been serviceable entertainment had it been released in the early 1950's. However, by the time that this came out in the mid-1960's, the Spaghetti Western was taking hold and the Revisionist Western making is debut.
The overly dramatic acting and score...the anachronistic clothing (Murphy's shirt has buttons along it's entire front as does his female costar's) and general "cleanliness" of the outdoors have been largely removed from Westerns by this point Basically, this movie came out 10-12 years too late.
If you are an Audie Murphy fan, then you'll get what you are expecting.If you are not,I'd suggest that you pass on this one.
