A determined Joan O'Brien hires Audie Murphy and Dan Duryea to apprehend her husband's killer in this unprepossessing vehicle for Universal's resident baby-faced cowboy star. It's good to see the snarling Duryea in his element, and the plot is unusually seasoned with humour. Sadly, Harry Keller's direction is very ordinary. Look out for veteran cowboy star Bob Steele, perhaps better known today as the killer Canino in The Big Sleep. This film originated as a screenplay written by Burt Kennedy and was intended for Randolph Scott in the series of westerns directed by Budd Boetticher at Columbia.
