Goofs

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 »

Last, but not LEAST ........
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Audie Murphy's western films of the 1950's were entertaining, action-filled and capitalized on his likable, resolute personality. The budgets for those '50's films were higher than his subsequent films in the 1960's. This average film has that weakness, but is still entertaining when viewed in that context.

This film's mediocre budget and production values disappoint, while still showcasing those aspects of Audie Murphy's talent that always appealed to his many fans. I especially liked the casting in this one, with western favorites Royal Dano and the crusty old Edgar Buchanan.

For fans of Murphy, this one is a must see...... for others, watch it in context and you will be surprised. Worth a closer look .........
