Eric Fleming has a big emergency on his hand. There's a prarie fire to the rear of
his trail herd and has to find a river crossing shallow enough to put his cattle
over before the fire overtakes them. Riding ahead he arrives at a smokehouse
where Leif Erickson runs a tannery. There's Erickson's wife Vera Miles and a
hired hand John Agar. Soon enough they're joined by an itinerant photographer
But they are also joined by Gene Evans and his outlaw band who are being
hunted by an army posse because they robbed an army payroll and killed
several to do it. Evans sends Favor out for his moll Allison Hayes who is
holding the loot while the others are hostages.
A nice all star cast makes this one enjoyable. Also present are J. Pat O"Malley
as another tanner Erickson hires on and Lane Bradford and Harry Dean Stanton
as part of Evans's outlaw gang.
A must for fans of the Rawhide series.
