Trivia

One of over 100 Columbia features, mostly westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, which marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned--with some titles misspelled--the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Cattle rangers conspire to get rid of sheepmen so they can have their land.

In spite of some questionable contrivance (which is pretty much a given for the genre in this era) this is a passable time killer. A better script could have made this quite good actually...
