Action-packed Western with thrills , go riding , shootouts and brilliant photographed in Technicolor
Decent Universal International production full of action , violent characters , thrills and lots of shots . A good example of B-Hollywood western genre mostly filmed in studios and including gorgeous exteriors . An outlaw gang (Rory Calhoun ,George Nader ,John McIntire , Jay Silverheels) on the lam encounters former associate Simon Bhumer (Walter Brennan) and his beautiful daughter (Colleen Miller), who's drawn to their leader Cully. They get together at a desert inn where scheme a robbing . As the band heads for the border after a bank heist, they encounter a band of renegade Apaches. One for all and all for trouble!
This is an exciting film , plenty action , thrills , fights , gun-down and breathtaking outdoors . One of a long series of colorful , double-features made at Universal International studies in the Fifties , films which made starts on of male actors : Rock Hudson , Audie Murphy , Ray danton , George nader and female actresses as : Rhonda Fleming , Yvonne De Carlo , Mauren O'Hara , , besides the stars of this Western : Rory Calhoun , George Nader and Richard Carlson himself . Well-made action sequences with rousing attacks and spectacularly made shootouts . Charismatic performance for whole casting .The rough outlaw Rory Calhoun and Colleen Miller as the luscious daughter Lolly deliver a nice loving chemical , in fact the best scenes happen at a stormy night, when Cully/Rory and Lolly/Colleen almost have an affair, including some erotic shots . Support cast is pretty good , such as the good-looking George Nader , the eternal secondary Walter Brennan playing an old gunfighter who still has a fast draw and now planning to retire on a farm, Nina Foch , the veteran John McIntire , Charles Drake , Nestor Paiva , Mary Field , Jay Silverheels as a half-breed bandit though he was better for his character as Tonto in the long -running Lone Ranger series .
The motion picture was well directed and in traditional style by Richard Carlson . Richard was a notorious actor who even played two classic movies such as It came from outer space and Creature from the black lagoon . He subsequently accepted charge of directing a silly pseudo-scientific premise entitled Riders to the Stars (1954), a low-budget enterprise bogged down at the expense of drama. In the course of the next twelve years, he directed some better second features, including the westerns Four Guns to the Border (1954) , The saga of Hamp Brown and Kid Rodelo (1966), many of them starred by Rory Calhoun , as well as a number of television episodes. He also wrote the occasional TV script, as well as contributing articles on non-fiction subjects to several magazines .
