Quotes

Wells Fargo Chief: First it was our offices, then the stagecoaches, now it's the trains. It's got to stop. We've got to teach these outlaws that it isn't healthy to rob Wells Fargo.

Routine western story
6 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Do not expect something exceptional, but only a solid and well made western predictable story. A railroad agent is assigned to infiltrate and annihilate an outlaw gang who regularly pulls heists against the trains. So, you see, that's a scheme already shown again and again. Period. But I repeat, everything is very professional and worth viewing for western buffs. Dale Robertson is here at his right place. Good action sequences, for instance the opening robbery one. Unfortunately for me, the copy I purchased was so poor...But the did not prevent me to spend twenty four minutes in a very agreeable way. I will forget it although in a few minutes. Directed by one TV specialist Bernie Girard.
