Before writing this review I took a look at Vanadium in Wikipedia and found that it is rarely found as a stand alone element. That it has many industrial uses, but did not find that it is used to manufacture gold which is also an element in our periodic table. So this entire film was so much fertilizer.
But the plot here is that some outlaws have captured a chemist and they have him working on trying to turn Vanadium into gold. A plot straight out of the Middle Ages for an American western where the villains are trying a hand at alchemy.
That's the mission the Frontier Marshals have to rescue the chemist from the outlaw's alchemy. Bill Boyd and Art Davis go undercover where these two break into song at some of the craziest moments. Lee Powell who didn't sing works from the outside.
Be assured justice was done, but not to the viewing movie going public who had to endure this claptrap.
