Behind a narration in the style of Jack Webb on TV's "Dragnet", U.S. Marshal Sam Nelson, posing as Sam Smith, is sent to a gold-boom town in California to learn the identity of three killers. Posing as a gunman and killer, he soon strikes up a friendship with card-sharp Alf Billings after saving him from being lynched when caught cheating in a card game. Billings suggests they become partners as his skill with cards (overlooking the near lynching he just escaped) and Sam's ability with guns should make them a fortune. Sam agrees, hoping that Billings will lead him to the men he is hunting. Billings leads him to Coldwater sheriff William Norris and Ernie Walker, Norris's partner in a saloon and gambling operation, both implicated in the murder case Sam is investigating. Written by

Wild Bill in the last days of his westerns .........
That peaceable man, Wild Bill Elliott appears in one of his final films as a Marshal in the wild and wooly west. He is ably supported here by co-stars Harry Morgan and John Doucette.
Elliott was one of the most popular of the western movie stars, playing Red Ryder and Wild Bill in several series of westerns.This one was not his best, but it is very entertaining and will more than satisfy his legion of fans. Harry Morgan does an admirable job in an interesting, atypical role.
Elliott's western film career lasted longer than others, and in this one we see the action, suspense and moral values that are sorely lacking in today's films ...... Enjoy !
