Unjustly booted out of the cavalry, Mike McComb strikes out for Nevada, and deciding never to be used again, ruthlessly works his way up to becoming one of the most powerful silver magnates in the west. His empire begins to fall apart as the other mining combines rise against him and his stubbornness loses him the support of his wife and old friends. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Michael J. 'Mike' McComb: Bitter? Uh,uh I'm not bitter. I'm grateful. For the lesson.
Major Spencer: Lesson?
Michael J. 'Mike' McComb: Yes. I didn't follow their rules so they tossed me out. But I'll follow them from now on in. Except they're gonna be my rules. In other words, if there's gonna be any shoving around, next time I'll do it

Western's King David and his Bathsheba!!!
26 July 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Definitelly Errol Flynn didn't works in western despite him tried hard to do it more l assure over it, the analogy told by the drunken lawyer John Plato Beck played by the great Thomas Mitchell one the greatest actor all time according over so many best acting along his career, about the biblical passage over the King David and Bathsheba was put in action on movie, Beck perhaps was the only good character who deserves so much attention, always speaking in speech way and has been a man who spent a time to study of human soul using facts from the past civilization, back to the movie for a western is more about politics matters instead what this genre used to provide, also Ann Sheridan's character after his husbund's death change too much your previous behavior gave us a lack of feelings!!!
