Trivia

This is the fifth western Tim Holt made in 1950. It has the same directorial style of Holt's 1940s films. Director George Archainbaud gave it the look as Holt's long-time director, Lesley Selander. Add to this the fact that Holt was 41 years old when this film was made--even though his appearance hadn't changed much in 20 years. He started his western film career in 1938 in The Renegade Ranger (1938) at age 19. See more »

Disaster Relief
26 January 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Tim Holt western has a different background than a lot of westerns as the subject is disaster relief. Inez Cooper who is a leading citizen and a wealthy one in Mexico has pledged her jewelry collection which is considerable and she's raised a lot more for the relief of her country's citizens left destitute after an earthquake. Tim Holt and Richard Martin rescue her from a robbery attempt by John Doucette and his gang of outlaws.

But House Peters, Jr. and saloon girl Jane Nigh also are interested and Peters is a ruthless con artist. They have one uneasy alliance with Doucette. Something that Tim and Chito can exploit.

Nigh is one woman Chito can't charm and Cooper is a bit out of his league.

Enough gunplay and a fast moving story for any B western fan.
