Storyline

Bill Fargo returns from prison to find Scanlon controlling the town including the Sheriff and the editor. First Scanlon has the Sheriff's opposition in the upcoming election murdered. Then when the editor confesses to Bill, he has him killed with Bill's gun. But the editor set off Scoops' camera just as he was shot and then left a dying note. Scoop finds the note and the inept photographer tries to develop the picture. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Short and to the point beats long and rambling
14 April 2020 | by nlathy-839-300677See all my reviews

This oater has a good performance by Johnny Mack Brown, comic relief from Fuzzy Knight and a song by the Eddie Dean Trio.Fisticuffs and gun fights make for an action packed 60 minutes.No overlong story telling here.Movie depicts familiar tale of town trying to get law and order. Recalls time when newspapers were needed to fight political corruption
