Storyline

When Sheriff Jake sees a man at the safe and then finds the payroll gone, he trails him. Just as he is about to arrest him, the man saves his life. Still suspicious, he joins up with the man and later they learn that Melgrove, the towns leading citizen, is trying to take over the area's ranches by having his gang stop all incoming supply wagons. With the ranchers about to sell to Melgrove, the two newcomers say they will bring in provisions. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

John Wayne rides again
3 June 2014 | by kairinglerSee all my reviews

This time John Wayne plays a U.S. Marshall and at the beginning of the film he sees a man standing behind a safe, so naturally he figures the man is trying to rob the safe,, so he goes to investigate,, and just as he is ready to arrest the man,, he find out it's the local sheriff, who happens to save his life in the very next instant, meanwhile the two become friends and they learn that the town's most prominent citizen is planning to take the town for all that it's worth by siphoning the town dry by cutting off all of it's supply wagons, the movie stars George "Gabby" Hayes,, and Yakima Canut. the usual suspects. but I enjoy watching them along with the Duke,, maybe not one of the Duke's stronger movies but all in all not bad either,, pretty decent , will have to watch again soon.
