Rancher Tom Haggerty is killed trying to stop a gun battle between his hot-headed brother Red and the sheriff, who is trying to repossess Haggerty's ranch for defaulting on a bank loan. After Tom's son Steve learns of his father's death, he is reluctantly persuaded by his Uncle Red to help rob the local bank. While waiting to hit another bank in the next town, Steve becomes town marshal to get inside information on the town's dealings, but soon takes his job to heart when he falls in love with Ellen, the banker's daughter. His honor is put on the line when he must face not only the guns of the local saloon-keeper's gang, but the wrath of his uncle when he finds out his nephew has betrayed him.Written by

Glen Strange, a frequent cast member of Tim Holt westerns, played outlaw boss 'Idaho'. He was comfortable playing in westerns because at various points is his life he'd been a rancher, a deputy sheriff, and a rodeo performer. Glenn Strange is also well known for his roles in House of Frankenstein, House of Dracula, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein - playing the Frankenstein monster. See more »
Complex Holt western with lots of hard riding and fast shooting, but no flying fists. Locations are mainly from familiar LA area scrublands. The plot's a layered one, involving several gangs and different degrees of bad-good guys. Holt starts out as bank robber stealing what he and brother Ankrum believe is their money defrauded from them by a bank. This leads to a series of encounters whose shifting details I leave to other reviewers.
Though Lasses White supplies humorous episodes, there's not the lighter tone of the later Chito- Holt entries. It's a fine cast of baddies, including toughie Roy Barcroft in a suit no less, and commanding Morris Ankrum who later saves the universe in 50's sci-fi. But pity poor Janet Waldo of radio fame. When not standing around nicely dressed, she gets all of one close-up, at movie's end. Oh well, there was always Corliss Archer on the radio dial.
All in all, having hero Holt undergo some value changes is unusual for an oater, and is the hour's main point of interest. (And see if you agree, Holt looks like a young Roy Rogers here.) Anyway, it's a well-cast and acted western if a somewhat complicated plot.
