Storyline

During the gold-rush days, Tom Horn is jailed for an assay office holdup at Gold City, after he loses his money and horse to cardsharp Blackie. Tom escapes with cell-mate Morgan, when the latter's men, Mingo, Red and Curly, rescue him from the jail. Mingo, and most of the gang, dislike Tom and they have lean times until Tom, using Morgan's gun, robs the Blue Goose Mining Company, where Julie works. The gang hides out in a ghost town from where they rob a train, and Tom saves Morgan's life. Tom and Julie become sweethearts, and he promises her wealth and a trip to San Francisco. But the gang begins to unravel. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Tombstone blues
21 April 2013 | by AAdaSCSee all my reviews

We follow Barry Sullivan (Tom Horn) in the Arizona desert towns as he joins up with a group of outlaws headed by Broderick Crawford (Morgan). They spend their time carrying out robberies so that they can fulfil their dreams. Sullivan plans to make it to San Francisco with Marjorie Reynolds (Julie) to embark upon married life. First of all, he has to make it out of Tombstone, though, a town that shows no mercy.

This is a snappy western with the acting honours going to Broderick Crawford. We get nice outside locations, shoot-outs, chasing posses, a square dance, bar-room entertainment courtesy of Julie Gibson (Dolly Lane), hold-ups, betrayal, a love interest and a final twist at the end. An enjoyable western.
