Trivia

A big cut in production at 20th Century-Fox as it moved toward an all-CinemaScope production schedule left many of its contract directors, writers, and actors idle. Fox arranged to lend these contractees to Leonard Goldstein and his newly formed Panoramic Productions in return for a release agreement. This was one of several pictures, financed by Fox but made at the RKO-Pathé studio, that resulted from the agreement. See more »

Quotes

Apache Joe: [to Tony Ballew] When a man's staked out over an anthill, he remembers things awful fast. There's lots of anthills around here, kid.

This was a very hard film to find. It took me years to track down a copy. I'm a big Jeffrey Hunter fan. In this film, Jeff overhears that some card sharks ( Michael Ansara & Aaron Spelling) are trying to blackmail Jeff's father. The blackmailers plan to rob a train that has

a federal payroll & force Jeff's father to join them with the robbery. Jeff disrupts their plans by robbing the train himself & puts the money in a safe place. His girlfriend ( Mitzi Gaynor) and his buddy ( Keefe Brasselle) find out what Jeff did. Keefe decides that he wants to keep the payroll money for himself while Jeff wants to return the money to the feds. Keefe joins up with the villains ( bad move) and Jeff goes after them to clear his and his father's name & also to save Keefe from the bad guys.
