Fur-trapper Shawn Garrett gets out of a horse-stealing charge in a small, frontier town by agreeing to buy the horse with a gold nugget. This nugget attracts the attention of a man named McCracken who, with his gang, secretly follows Garrett across the desert in the hope of finding the source of his gold. Garrett joins up with his partner, Jim Rainbolt, and together they manage to hold off McCracken's gang long enough to hide their gold before seeking refuge in the hacienda of a landowner named Gondora. Gondora soon finds out about the gold, however, and Rainbolt and Garrett now find themselves in a fight to save their gold and their lives as well.Written by
The novel (by Steve Frazee) on which this movie is based was originally titled "Desert Guns." See more »
When Jim Rainbolt (Clint Walker) and Shaun Garrett (Roger Moore) slide a little ways down the mountain and each hide behind their own boulder to confront their pursuers, they raise a cloud of dust. Immediately after stopping behind their respective boulders, they are both shown individually in close-up peering from behind the boulders with no dust around them at all, and immediately after that they are both shown again in the same frame behind their boulders with the dust cloud all around them that they had just raised.

Doc Wilson Gates, MD:
You're kinda fond of that young feller, ain't ya?
Sort of used to him after three years. He's got a knack for getting us into trouble and his mouth is too big for his size sometimes, but there ain't nobody I'd rather have backing me.

Entertaining if light western riff on "Treasure of the Sierra Madre"
Western knock-off of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" is entertaining if not as brilliant as it's source material. Clint Walker and Robert more find 125 pounds of gold nuggets and are on the run across the desert from various factions also wanting the gold. Walker is serviceable as the lead (I always thought he'd be perfectly cast as The Punisher), but it's a young Roger Moore (even before his breakthrough role as Simon Templar in "The Saint") who really brings life to the picture as a wily Irishman. It's nothing brilliant that you haven't seen before in any number of other western, but it's all done well and was never boring. Co-written by the great Leigh Brackett, who's worked on everything from "The Big Sleep" to "Rio Bravo" to "The Empire Strikes Back."
