Unjustly booted out of the cavalry, Mike McComb strikes out for Nevada, and deciding never to be used again, ruthlessly works his way up to becoming one of the most powerful silver magnates in the west. His empire begins to fall apart as the other mining combines rise against him and his stubbornness loses him the support of his wife and old friends. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

Major Spencer: I can't blame you for feeling bitter
Michael J. 'Mike' McComb: Bitter? Uh,uh I'm not bitter. I'm grateful. For the lesson.
Major Spencer: Lesson?
Michael J. 'Mike' McComb: Yes. I didn't follow their rules so they tossed me out. But I'll follow them from now on in. Except they're gonna be my rules. In other words, if there's gonna be any shoving around, next time I'll do it

Good action scenes, dreary plot-line
15 November 2002 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Flynn plays an unscrupulous sleaze-bag for most of the film, and it fits him like a glove. Sheridan is plucky but not quite as beautiful as I'm used to seeing her. Flynn is out after the married Sheridan with a leer in his eye, but there's not a lot of sexual tension once he's got his hands on her. Large-scale battle and mob scenes show off the large budget. Better than usual score from Max Steiner. A nice A-production from Warner Brothers that you probably haven't seen, but not much more than that.
