User Reviews

Interesting Western which has been difficult to locate
5 July 2015 | by alkboroughSee all my reviews

The best part of the film was a sequence taken directly from Lust for Gold 1949 where the Indians attack gold prospectors in a remote valley many years before. Very much a studio set but extremely well done with production quality well ahead of the rest of the film. Interesting to note that the Englishman that played Valerie French's father in the film was Reginald Sheffield who was the father of Johnny and Billy Sheffield who were boy stars in films - Johnny playing Boy in the Tarzan films and later Bomba The Jungle Boy. I well remember seeing this film as a youngster and somehow the plot has always stayed with me - and on seeing it again last evening - the main elements that had stuck in my mind were there. I had remembered a search for the Braganza crosses - small metal crosses - that if found would lead to the famous Braganza treasure in Treasure Mountain. I have looked for the name Braganza before - and not been able to find it - and thought I had this wrong but I was pretty sure I had it right - and so it proved to be the case. The production values of the film were not top class by any means but the flashback sequence to the man who had discovered the treasure 200 years earlier when the Indians attacked and killed the searchers and Braganza himself in the cave was very well done - these scenes were pinched for an earlier film Lust for Gold with Glenn Ford. It has taken a long time searching for this film but I now have it and have seen it again.
