More plot than usual
8 June 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In this western Tim Holt and Richard Martin are forced to turn into Robin Hood like outlaws when they see town boss Mauritz Hugo extorts money out of all the ranchers and others with his toll road. But things do get complicated in this film which has a bit more plot to it than the usual Tim Holt westerns.

Two women figure prominently in this film. Noreen Nash plays the cowgirl daughter of one of the extorted ranchers and Dorothy Patrick is a saloon girl and one of Chito's old flames. She's one smart cookie.

One of Hugo henchmen Robert J. Wilkie has an interesting part.. He's fired for incompetence by Hugo and before the film is over Hugo wishes he hadn't done it. You'll have to see the film to find out the what and why.

Tim Holt fans won't be disappointed.
