Randolph Scott stars as a trouble-shooting railway foreman in director Andre De Toth's roistering western, leading the fight against slumming villain Raymond Massey and his gang of bandits. De Toth had a good rapport with Scott, and this is one of the best of their several westerns together. It's also notable for being one of the first movies filmed in Warnercolor, Warner Bros's own short-lived rival to Technicolor. It was released in the UK on a double bill with the musical About Face, starring Gordon MacRae - now there's value for money!
