Storyline

Sergeant Foggers and two Confederate soldiers lay their hands on gold bullion belonging to the army, taking at the same time a certain Ben Akajnian hostage. Then they bury the loot near an isolated waterhole in the desert. Some time later, Lewton Cole, a professional gambler, fights a duel with one of the robbers, kills him and finds the map of the treasure on his body. Stopping at the small town of Integrity, Cole, in order to escape Sheriff Copperud locks him up in his own jail-house, steals his horse and even finds the time to "seduce and abandon" Billee, the sheriff's comely daughter. The indignant father catches up with Lewton, arrests him and grabs the gold. But Foggers and his accomplice attack him, relieve him of the treasure and free Cole... Written by Guy Bellinger

Goofs

When George, the hotel clerk, gives the sheriff a handgun, he says it was taken off of John Wesley Hardin, by Constable John Selman, who had shot Hardin on a Monday afternoon at the Acme Saloon in El Paso Texas. But the opening of the movie says that the action takes place in 1884. In 1884, Hardin was in Huntsville State Prison, serving 14 years for the 1878 shooting of a Texas lawman. The shooting of Hardin by Selman in the Acme Saloon in El Paso would not occur for another 11 years: on August 19, 1895-indeed a Monday-three years after Hardin's release from prison in 1892. It is doubtful any guns were removed from Hardin that day, because the sheriff of El Paso had outlawed the carrying of firearms within city limits. See more »

A solid western with some nice humor and music
14 January 1999 | by (Sewell, NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie incorporated some good dialogue, enjoyable scenery, and a nice job on the title song and narration by Roger Miller. One of the most memorable scenes involves the old standard gunfight which most definitely will generate some laughs if you've seen one too many shootouts. I thoroughly enjoyed this western and gave it a Waterhole #8.
