Review

Our Score
This western has a cracking premise: a gang springs outlaws from jail, uses them for hold-ups until the price on their head increases, then turns in their corpses and collects the reward. Unfortunately, George Montgomery is wooden as the detective who goes undercover to investigate the racket, and the intriguing plotline is inadequately realised thanks to the paucity of the budget. The story was used again in 1964 by the same studio, Allied Artists, for Gunfight at Comanche Creek with Audie Murphy.

Summary

Western, starring George Montgomery, James Best, Douglas Kennedy and Keith Larsen.
