Storyline

In 1860s Texas, ranch hand Mike Reno has a fist fight with his ranch owner uncle over some unpaid wages. Mike is finally paid his back wages and heads for the nearest town where he gambles his wages away in a saloon. Unhappy about the loss, Mike starts a disturbance in the saloon and he is promptly arrested by local Marshal Gideon McCool. In jail, Mike is awaiting the next transport to the larger Huntsville territorial prison. Also awaiting transfer to the prison is fellow jailbird Aaron Pleasant who was arrested for mistakenly shooting a child in the dark street and subsequently sentenced to death by hanging. Marshal Willett tasks Marshal Gideon McCool to transport these prisoners to Huntsville using an improvised purpose-built prison wagon. The road to Huntsville passes through the Texas badlands and the Marshal feels he needs at least one more deputy in order to fulfill his task. Realizing that Mike Reno is not a real criminal he suggests that he pay a 50 dollar fine instead of ... Written by nufs68

Great cast makes this turkey worthwhile
21 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

What a cast! What a so-bad-it's-good movie! George Montgomery plays U.S. Marshall Gid McCool (dig that name!), who's in charge of transporting a wagon train of convicted felons to a state prison in Texas. Tab Hunter, playing his umpteenth juvenile role while in his mid-thirties, is his upstart of a deputy. (He's also got the most obvious stunt double you've ever seen!) Yvonne De Carlo, sporting the longest false eyelashes and giving the worst performance ever by an actress in a western, is one of the prisoners. Not a stereotype left unplayed!
