Storyline

Terrorizing 1866 Indiana, the Reno brothers gang uses the town of Seymour as a safe haven, paying off three crooked town officials. Sent in to clean up the gang is Peterson Detective Agency operative James Barlow, who poses as an outlaw to gain the confidence of the officials and the thick-headed brothers. Complicating matters are Barlow's feelings for the Reno sister, Laura, who reluctantly keeps house for the boys out of family loyalty. Events heat up and rage surfaces as Barlow sets up the gang in a dawn train robbery. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Typical 50s western - with one special aspect
24 April 2019 | by scott-1778See all my reviews

Pretty standard 50s western fare here...nothing you wouldn't expect.

However, as I grew up in Jackson County, Indiana, it was quite strange to hear the names and the communities from my childhood as the locale of the story.

By the way, whoever wrote the "trivia" for this film has no idea what they're talking about in regards to the "flat plains" of Indiana. The film notes at the beginning this is "Southern Indiana" -- and my home county has some significant hills and very rolling landscape. Central and northern Indiana IS flat. Where this movie takes place is definitely NOT.
