Average Color B-film with good performances ........
This Cinecolor B-western has the usual Calvary vs. Indians script, with a stolen Gatling Gun thrown in to boot !. The storyline drags at times, but is helped by strong performances from Rod Cameron and a pre-Gunsmoke James Arness. Arness had one of his first major roles here, as one of the Gatling Gun henchmen.
The video quality was poor, with many of the color scenes actually seeming to have a greenish tint ! I enjoyed this film, mainly for the great acting job done by Jim Davis as a Cavalry Lieutenant. Davis was a very good actor who excelled in many western films...... he never quite became a star, but he was much better than many who did !
