Storyline

Bad seed Steve Taylor is pulled out of a saloon by his brother Tim after Steve kills cheating poker player Hoyt Parker in self defense. Steve, who's been financing his gambling addiction with money from his fiancée, is convinced by Tim to give himself up for trial. Found guilty without crucial testimony of his innocence by saloon girl Flora Trigby, who has fled to Mexico, the two brothers make their getaway to a secret hideout, where Tim heads out to find Flora. Tim's enthusiasm for protecting his brother lessens when he returns with Flora and learns someone matching Steve's description has held up the stage and killed passenger Nash Prescott, Parker's co-partner and Steve's chief accuser at the trial.

Trivia

Steve Brodie plays the ne'er-do-well brother of Tim Holt's character, who is falsely accused of murder and defended by his brother Tim. One year earlier Brodie played the villain in another Holt western, Guns of Hate (1948), in which his character was just as selfish and impulsive as his character in this film. See more »

not my favorite Holt/Martin movie
25 April 2003 | by KDWmsSee all my reviews

It was like watching two professional wrestlers, as brothers Tim and Steve bash on each other. Ain't that just what brothers do? C'm on; not at THIS age. And what's a Holt movie without Richard Martin? - one of more than thirty times as sidekick Chito. Initially Steve kills a fellow card-player, who draws first, as seen by Flora. But, to convict Steve, the dead man's partner coerces her to vamoose to Mexico, from where Tim and Chito return her. While he's waiting for them to bring her back, Steve robs a stagecoach, a passenger on which is the gambling partner, who Steve murders. Hearing this, Tim can no longer tolerate Steve's behavior, and the sibling rivalry goes into high gear. I should also mention the character, Nancy, from whom Steve mooches much lucre to support his gaming habit, even though he's engaged to her. She owns the ranch on which the three guys work. There are other Holt/Martin collaborations which I've enjoyed more.
