The branch the two Indians removed before they were killed at the start of the film was not large enough to warrant removal. In reality, they would have just ridden past/over it. See more »

Indian wars can get real messy
19 August 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In a departure from the usual formula for his Republic films, Rocky Lane has no legal standing of any kind. He's not a US Marshal, sheriff, insurance investigator, etc. in this film. Just your ordinary cowboy who gets himself into a nasty jackpot when he comes upon a dying courier with a sacred tribal belt taking it back to the Indian agency.

Lane returns the belt to the Indian agency to whom he thinks is the agent, but turns out to be an impostor. And Rocky is accused of murdering the real Indian agent by witness Eddy Waller.

This is all part of a scheme by freighter Roy Barcroft to start an Indian war. Barcroft wants to steal mining ore while miners are fighting Indians. I don't know about you, but I would think that a villain as clever as Barcroft would find an easier way. Indian wars do tend to get out of hand.

Not the best of the Rocky Lane series from Republic.
