Storyline

A group of Arizona ranchers, trying to learn the identities of the Salt River Gang and prevent any further rustling, marks the currency that rancher Frank Abbott turns over to the gang to get his cattle back. Unfortunately drifters Dick McBride and Chito Rafferty are accused of being in the gang when they are found with the money, which they have actually won at the casino of saloon owner Brad Carew, a member of the gang. Dick and Chito break out of jail and hunt down the fleeing Carew in hopes of finding out who the true leader of the gang is. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

What Kind of Rustlers Are They
1 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Solid Holt-Martin programmer. Riding into town, the boys are looking for a job. Trouble is that rustlers have driven many local ranchers into penury, so no jobs for the guys. But who is this rustler gang and who's leading them. The guys, of course, get caught up in the struggle, but can they out- tough ranch girl Ruthie (Hyer) who keeps getting the drop on our heroes.

The plot's fairly standard with a mystery mastermind, a saloon, and lots of hard-riding. Naturally, Chito can't keep his mind on business with bar-girl Trixie (Andrews) wiggling around. Good thing no- nonsense Holt's on the case. So there's got to be some fast-shooting and a saloon bout of flying fists to spice things up. Plus, there's some pretty good scenery from what looks like the piney Big Bear area northeast of LA. At least it's not the cheaper scrublands of LA area. And catch the fiery showdown, more budget consuming than most. All in all, the programmer's nothing special, but workhorse director Selander does keep things moving, while our heroes are in fine form, as usual. Anyway, the results are sure good enough for this front-row geezer.
