Catlow helps Cowan, when he is wounded in the right leg by an arrow from the Apaches, despite Cowan hunting him. Catlow escapes with help of his gang. Catlow then robes a Mexican gold shipment, worth $ 2,000,000. Catlow flies with the stolen gold through the dangerous territory of the Apaches who besides of Miller, Cowan and the Mexican cavalry, are hunting for him and his gang of outlaws. Written by
Leonard Nimoy mentioned this film in both of his autobiographies because it gave him a chance to break away from his role as Spock on Star Trek. He mentioned that the time he made the film was one of the happiest of his life, even though his part was rather brief. See more »

You still got that warrant?
Two. One for jumping arrest. You stirred up some kind of a hornet's nest back there. And that Miller, he's packing a lot of heat.
Think I can't handle him?
Well, if somebody shoots you, let's keep it in the family. I'm gonna bring you in before he carries you in.
There's a derringer looking at you says you don't.

I'd hate to shoot that badge off you just to prove it.

Light hearted and humorous. Old friends on opposite sides of the law. The friendship is obvious and presents humorous situations throughout the movie as they try to outwit each other. Leonard Nimoy is a cold hearted villain that hates Bijah Catlow and throughout the movie tries to kill him. The movie follows the Louis L'Amour story of the same name pretty closely. US Marshal Ben Cowan spends the movie trying to outwit and capture Catlow, but also tries to protect him from Nimoy. Catlow tries to locate lost Confederate gold and is a wild cowboy with a good heart. If you like Louis L'Amour westerns novels, and Yul Brynner westerns then you will enjoy this delightful movie.
