This was the very last film distributed by Allied Artists Corporation (early in its life, Allied Artists was known as Monogram Pictures, which was responsible for all the "Bowery Boys" movies). Citing extreme financial difficulties, Allied Artists filed for Chapter 11 in late 1978, and the following year their entire backlog (including the Monogram films) was purchased by Lorimar/Telepictures Corporation. When Lorimar itself was purchased by Time Warner, Inc. a decade later, Warner Bros. became the owner of the Allied Artists/Monogram backlog (on some TV prints of the "Bowery Boys" features, the "WB Shield" logo precedes the opening credits).

Clayton and Catherine are eating dinner in a hotel dining room. Clayton tells her that he is a gunfighter and she is a woman between husbands. The shot returns to Catherine who is sitting in a different setting (her hotel room), but answers as if the conversation was continuous. See more »

A rancher standing in the way of the railroad getting his property is slated for killing by a convict who will escape the hangman's noose if he does the job. Instead of doing the hit, the con takes off with the rancher's wife, creating a big manhunt and many deaths. There was a big shoot-out at the end of the picture and a few high points along the way, but overall this film was a loser. Too many pointless sex and nudity scenes, not enough action. Slow and dull.
