Sharpshooters Zack Thomas and Joe Jarrett are in a Texan stage-coach and manage to fight off Matson's robber gang, so afterward they can fight over the $100,000 cash carried by a railroad official. Both make it to Galveston, where each, including vexed Matson, meets up with respective accomplices in various dirty schemes. The money keeps changing hands and the scene shifts to a river boat, which should multiply the winnings as a casino, but the crooks and bullets follow.Written by
When Joe leaves with the money bag, Zack waves to him. Then the big rock on the left side of the screen has a branch in front of it, but no shadow at all. Zack lights a cigar, turns around the stagecoach and the big rock is a different one, with shadow and no branch any more. See more »

Bronsonin this supposed comedy-westernas outlaw leader Matson who works for crooked banker Victor Buono, helps start the film off on a high note of action He and his henchmen attack a stagecoach whose passengers include Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra
After repulsing the bandits, Zack (Sinatra) discloses a bag containing $100,000, and Joe (Martin) unexpectedly relieves him of the money at gunpoint
In Galveston, Joe deposits the money in a bank run by Harvey Burden (Buono), a thief who has supported Zack's efforts to become the town's gambling king
When Zack arrives in town, Matson tries to kill him, but Joe interferes, saving Zack's life Then Zack learns that Joe intends to compete with him by converting an abandoned riverboat into a gambling saloon Outraged, he raises a gang, intending to take over the boat on opening night But Burden has plans of his own
