Storyline

Abilene gunmen are bent on terrorizing the town of Blue Valley and massacring its inhabitants. They have been hired by local druggist Henry Turner, who has discovered gold beneath the town and wishes complete possession. The gunmen rob supply wagons, burn houses, kill leading citizens and then the gang leader, Brink Fallon, having acquired Rocky Lane's paper, poses as the new deputy marshal sent to bring order. Then the real Rocky Lane shows up in his usual bad mood, and the tide begins to turn. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Standard western fare
11 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

There is really nothing to recommend this movie other than an example of Alan "Rocky" Lane, a western star with over 125 films to his credit. The cast is so undistinguished that they even credit the horse! If you've seen more than a couple of westerns, then this one is familiar. The bad guys find gold/silver/whatever, and they want to get it before anyone else knows it is there. So, they start running people out of town. In rides the sheriff/Marshall/whatever and saves the day, but not before he is arrested himself or has to fight his way out of impossible situations.

Yawn!
