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.

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.

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.
