Young lawyer Tod Jackson arrives in pioneer Kansas to visit his prosperous rancher friends the Daltons, just as the latter are in danger of losing their land to a crooked development company. When Tod tries to help them, a faked murder charge turns the Daltons into outlaws, but more victims than villains in this fictionalized version. Will Tod stay loyal to his friends despite falling in love with Bob Dalton's former fiancée Julie?Written by

Towards the end of the 19th Century in America, civilization surges ever west and in it's wake, came that inseparable pair, INJUSTICE and CRIME. In the history of the reckless violence that seized Kansas and Oklahoma, no name carried more terror than DALTON. There were more famous outlaws, but none more daring, none more desperate.
This, then, is the story of the Dalton brothers, based, to a large extent, on the tales that the old settlers still tell of them-woven together with strands of fiction. But, so incredible were the Daltons, that no man can say where fact ends and fancy begins. See more »
Thank goodness for the comic relief of Andy Devine or I wouldn't have had a chance to breathe! I've watched over 200 westerns in the last month (including over 95 John Wayne films) from 1926 onwards and I have to say that NONE of them had the action or pace of this one. Not to mention a stellar cast. The action scenes with horses were of the very best. There was the classic Yakima Canutt jump from the stagecoach to the horses but not just one jump but several of the Dalton's, one after the other from the same coach. There were horses jumping from moving trains and diving off cliffs into water and the pace just didn't let up. Gun play? Don't get me started! Half the budget must have gone to black powder. I don't care how you get to see this film, beg borrow or download, just get it.
