Storyline

Homesteaders Mace Corbin and Clyde Moss pick up much needed dynamite and begin a journey to transport it from an army fort to their homes, hiring a crew of ex-soldiers just released from the army prison. Mace knows he's got his work cut out for him with unstable dynamite, undisciplined hired hands and possible hostile Indians but he doesn't have the slightest hint that his trusted friend Clyde has betrayed him.

Some Really Bad Dynamite With Some Guardhouse Specials
28 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

As Wild Bill Elliott's career as a film cowboy hero was coming to a close his last studio was Allied Artists where clearly he was not getting the budgets he got at Republic or Columbia. And there was something incongruous about seeing him behind a plow as he was playing one of The Homesteaders.

Bill and partner Robert Lowery hear about how they can acquire some dynamite, four wagonloads of it in fact from the Army which Elliott wants to use to blow stumps and rocks from the hilly ground he's trying to farm on. Lowery however is in deep to gambler James Seay who wants the stuff to use for mining gold. He's reluctant to pull a doublecross on a friend though.

But the reason the army wants to get rid of the dynamite so cheap is its a really bad batch. Very unstable, but the commander of the post also gives Elliott and Lowery some of his best guardhouse specials as a crew to transport it.

Although the action is a plenty as in Wild Bill Elliott films, this cast good and bad guys alike should have all been blown to smithereens. Elliott has to deal with discipline among his crew, Lowery's treachery, an Indian attack, and finally a showdown with Seay and his band. The way the bullets and arrows were flying around they all should have been blown to smithereens.

Definitely Elliott's career was on the downside with stuff like The Homesteaders.
