For a low-budget film, it was not that bad.
26 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was another low budget western film that 20th Century made in the early and mid 60's to be shown as a double feature mostly at drive-in theaters. And yes, there are a few rough spots in this movie but overall it was not as bad as expected for a 'B' western. As usual the production features a few name actors and many newcomers which makes some of the scenes rather rocky to watch. But because of the western genre, it is easier to pass over the rough spots and make the picture entertaining as possible.

It is a rather simple plot as two young robbers, Jeb and Johnny Sims, has been arrested by the local Marshal. The Marshal wants to get the two criminals out of his territory because he knows that the two boys have many friends and will be wanting to spring them from jail. The Marshal is also dealing with a former gunslinger named Ben Lattimore. Ben's sister was killed by the two boys when they robbed a stage in the area. Lattimore is out for revenge.

The Marshal, with some help from a few people, are taking the boys to the territorial prison on the upcoming stagecoach. Lattimore gets word that the two are being transferred and he rides out to meet the stage. He wants the Marshal to release the boys so that he can take out his revenge. But when the two criminal's friends decide to free the boys, Lattimore may have to help the Marshal keep the prisoners in custody.

There is more to this tale as the wife of Lattimore is leaving him because Ben refuses to stop his gun-fighting. Also the mother of Jeb and Johnny is set on making sure that her boys are freed before they reach prison. Just by luck, or by simple writing, the two women land on the same stagecoach that the Marshal is transporting the prisoners.

Unlike others, I found this low-budget film to be watchable. Sure the acting was rough, the scenes were cheaply done and it seems that the main characters only receive flesh wounds while the no-names are killed with one easy shot -- but overall the viewer got exactly what was expected. The film was made to entertain audiences for an hour, it accomplished its task.
