Do you mind if I offer you some advice? I think you should grab what you can and clear out now, because I don't think you'd like prison. You can take that from someone who's been there.

This was not a bad little 30 minute TV show first shown in 1960. It involves a "diamond mine" in the old West. Bat Masterson runs into frequent flame Ellie Winters played by the beautiful Allison Hayes. Ellie is working for the owners of the diamond mine. The owners are selling shares to the local people (prospects-not prospectors) and have produced some "diamonds" to entice them to become investors. Ellie believes in the venture and talks it up to William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson played by Gene Kelley. Bat decides to invest (meagerly) and investigate the brilliance of this diamond mine. Those familiar with her know that Allison Hayes is a girl worth dieing for, and Bat is no exception.
This film shows Ms. Hayes acting skills as well as her comely features. She is not as enticing (nor as scantily attired) as she is in "The Undead" and "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman." If you want to see the more of the beautiful Ms. Hayes in her best form (as luscious Livia the witch), obtain a copy of the early Roger Corman film "The Undead."
