Storyline

Former army Captain Linus Quincannon makes his living as a scout after quitting the army. Quincannon, who is part-Indian, quit the army after a massacre of natives by the 7th Cavalry. Nevertheless, his former commanding officer, Col. Harry Conover, sends for him. He needs his help in tracing and retrieving 800 stolen Henry repeating rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition that were captured by the Indians. The colonel informs Quincannon that Indians had inside information about the real contents of the supply transport. The transport was disguised to look as an ordinary supply run but the Indians knew what was in the barrels. The rifles were en route to Fort Smith where Capt. Bell is in charge. Quincannon is also told that an army payroll was taken. Having lived among natives, Quincannon knows they have no use for money. This suggests that someone at Fort Smith might be involved. The colonel asks Quincannon to go there and investigate the matter and possibly retrieve the stolen rifles ... Written by nufs68

Tony Martin rides into oblivion
29 October 2001 | by JANA-7See all my reviews

After enjoying Mr Martin's voice in many musicals, I found it very difficult to buy his casting and acting in a Western! The story line was ok, however Mr. Martin bombs as a cowboy and I wonder who put him upto this endeavor which falls very short of the mark.
